    Home made tube bender for 45mm 2.5mm wall CDS tube

    In the past I made this little unit to help me make a roll bar for my kit car.

    It worked well in the end, I had inspiration from all over the net to make it and a few daft ideas that vibrated my hand to bits as well making the die.

    A link to my web page that holds the information is here:-

    Hope it gives someone an idea to make their own.

    Hi Adrian,

    I meant to ask you the other day: what sort of kit car are you building? Let's see some pics!

    I just "finished" (never really done, of course) an Ultima GTR and am already thinking of the next project.

    The Kit car was built in 2009 when I hit 50, was my mid life crisis car, so hope to reach 100.

    Every now and then I will do a mod to it and the roll bar was for me trying my hand at sprint and hill climb, unfortunately I am not fast enough either in nerves or car speed as some spend thousands of pounds and I am just not that serious, but I like my safety!

    There are car build pages on my website.
    Build Diary of Roadster
    Build Diary of Roadster
    Build Diary of Roadster
    Build Diary of Roadster
    and to finally get it passed the IVA here in the UK
    Build Diary of Roadster

    The web page was started as a build diary and finally printed out as proof of self build and passed on to the VOSA and DVLA people prior to test and tax.
