    ..I have a list of many things.
    I have the plans figured out but I just need a few key points of advice.

    What is the most common tube metal in a common tube bumper company?
    -Wall Thickness: 1/8th,
    -Type of Metal: DOM, Seam-weld, rolled, etc.
    -Overall Diameter: 1.5", 2"

    Thanks! I'll pull up my plans later. Gotta find my camera and clean up my chicken scratch :eek:

    Probably the most common would be something like .120 wall DOM for a bumper.
