Thanks for the offers. The parts were sold already. WHEN parts are sold, the ad should be taken off craigslist.

What was it you were hoping to buy. A legal rope deflector?
"Legal rope deflector" WTF... you guys are killing me. Fu the rope deflectors. I'm hoping to get one built to spec before the year is over. Only so many hours in a week.
I was looking for some Alcoa wheels for my dually. Hotshots.

That does look like Ed's. I think Ed's has a few more braces, though. HAHA
I'm investigating aero tubing to minimize aerodynamic losses.
I figure.. knowing me... I can tie up over 300 bucks and about 20 hours building one. (or more)

Just give me the word Wags and I will swing by Aircraft Spruce and grab some up for you. I am thinking with a little ingenuity, and some planing, you could make a "LEGAL" rope deflector and a wing in the same component. Maybe even sell a few :D

Wow, awesome. You can ship it to me. I will put a big ass GN7 sticker on. Thanks for the sponsorship.
I'd like something about 3/8 wide by whatever length. I need about 8'

Whoa pal, @ 99.00 for 6ft, your on your own. I was just throwing out ideas. Still cheaper than a seperate "LEGAL" deflector and a wing.:)devil

And its FAA certified if you should happen to take flight!
Hell, I said a BIG GN7 sticker. Both sides??
OK, is the alum aero tubing true aero, or just an oval. My local steel place has aero chromoly. A little hard to polish and keep clean. Painting sucks.
The oval stuff they had was thick wall too. Probably .08 ish.

You're right BP. What was I thinking. Chrome. Of course.
And to think I was just contemplating paint. I'm a fool!
Let's see. 200 to 300 for tube. Time is free of course. Another 200 to 400 for chrome. Sounds about right.
