Okay so next week I plan on buying my pipe bender and start making truck armor, a lot of Texas guys have already heard my plans and stuff. But the point of this thread is to ask the customers opinion about pricing. There's 2 ways to go about making sliders and stuff and 1 way is tubing and 1 way is piping. Tubing would be .140 wall and is what most companies use and has that shiny bare metal finish and is lighter. Piping would be .250 wall and super strong but has that black bare metal finish and isn't as smooth and heavier.
The answer y'all have to give me is:Piping is like WAY cheaper than tubing. Sliders made from pipe would cost like $200-$250 per set. But since Tubing cost stupidly more than pipe, I'd have to sell them for like $350-$450 per set.
So would y'all pay for the tubing ones or pipe? Please give me yalls answer and explanation why you chose that answer!
