    Sidekick bumper build

    Hi another newbie here, just thought I would try posting some pictures. Everyone likes pictures...right?
    Here are some of the tube bumper I am building for my 89 Sidekick.
    Tubing is a mix of 1.75" /.120 wall DOM and ERW. Its just tacked up at this stage, it still needs a reciever hitch for a removable winch mount.
    Let me know what you think.

    Wish I could help you, but no time. I barely have time to work on my own junk.

    Heres the final result of my bumper build including paint. The white paint was just primer but it shows up better in pictures. Next is the rollbar, rear bumper and rock sliders.

    Really nice work Did you cap the ends of the tube?

    What bender did you use? Any pictures of your bender in action?

    Keep the pics coming! Good work.

    Thanks stihl036,

    Yes I cut the ends off at an angle and welded a cap on. Heres what it looks like.

    My tube bender is a home built job. I got a set of plans and had the parts laser cut. It uses Protools dies but I only have one 1.75" x6clr die.

    The ends look good, nice attention to detail. I was sorta hoping you were using a home built job (gives me inspiration to finish mine.) I am part way through the process of building JD2 copy with air over hydraulic ylinder. Our parts were flame cut, but look pretty good.

    Was it pricey to have the parts laser cut? Where did you get it done?

    Keep your eye on the "projects" forum in the next few weeks, we will be finishing the benders and I will make a post and take some pictures along the way.

    Thanks for the pictures.

    Thanks for the comments stihl036,

    I had the parts cut at Industrial Laser cutting in Delta. Not sure on the pricing as I have a special deal with the owner.

    http://www.industriallaser.com/index.htm

    The laser cut parts are really nice as all the dimensions are accurate to within about 1thou and the finish on the cuts is beautiful. The only issue I had with the laser cut parts was the thickness of the main plates. The plans called for 1/2" thick plate but the laser only cuts to 3/8". What I had them do was cut two 1/4" plates and laminated them together and plug welded them.

    Good luck on finishing your bender, I will be interested to see the results.
