Topic: New team - WTB(borrow or buy?) tubing bender/notcher - SF bay area
New team here, looking to install a cage in our lemon so we can come out and play!
We've got a highish mileage integra (260k+) that we've taken to a number of HPDEs last year and had a pretty good time fixing the issues that come from tracking an older higher mileage car... But we bought the car with the intent of racing in Lemons/LD/etc. So it's time to put in a cage and seat.
I'm a fairly competent welder and fabricator, and as such I'll be installing the cage in our car. We initially planned on buying a tube bender and notcher, but given the cost of nice equipment it seems like it makes more sense to buy a kit from one of the known vendors (RCC/SW/RRC/etc).
I was about to click buy when I realized maybe one of you folks has a tube bender you would be willing to loan us (or sell?) or maybe even just help us bend the tubes we need. The car is stored in Mountain View, and my shop space is in Redwood City, but we're willing to bring the car or ourselves to the east bay or San Jose (or further?) if needed.
Here's hoping one of you all can help us join the fray!
