I actually bought this from McMasterCarr.
(Same as 89895K762)
Type 304 SS Smooth-Bore Seamless Tubing 3/4" OD, .51" ID, .12" Wall, 6' Length
In stock at $89.66 Each
Not the cheapest way to go but I wanted the heavier wall thickness to match what came on the Bethanian rear nudge bar. I cut the spacers off that they had welded to it because the length at the body side was staggered and I wasn't going to use spacers to make it right. The 3/4" OD actuall looks a lot better than the 5/8" OD that FFR supplies. Just my opinion.
I bought 6 feet of 3/4" .035" wall thickness aluminumn tubing from onlinemetals.com. I cut it up, polsished the outslde, and made all the standoffs for about $20. The ID of that tubing just fits over the bosses inside the finishline overiders. The OD is perfect for the Finishling front rubber grommets.
On a related note, how far should I set the rear bumper from the body. I don't have the body a home now, so I can't measure it. I bought a length of stainless all thread to mount the Finishline over riders and bumper, just need to know how far it should be from the body. Thanks, John
