Nope. I have checked with Central Plains Steel and they seemed pricey but it has been awhile. I buy all of my stuff from onlinemetals.com.
Nice to know. Best Supply can get it, but it's special order and I don't think it's worth it. ($13/ft, 2"x.25" wall, IIRC)

Love the recent purchases BTW, that truss and steering are still on my list, as well as a set of your guys' wheels.

Didn't know Holzmans would order tubing for a person...Very cool. Had my axles setup down there though. Like your sig pic, I'm in that picture (Sorry for hijack Dookie)

Pump installed and pulley installed the correct way.



Installed the stock bolts with the stock bracket on the back side. Everything fit really well.

Spensive.

I'm about to order a few more parts from PSC. They have a slick way to mount a couple of coolers up front of the radiator. I'm going to use it to cool the transmission and steering. Check this out.





I will use the passenger side cooler for the auto and the driver side for the steering. Should be ample cooling considering how much air should move through the radiator.

More progress. Got the steering column bracket mounted back up.



And final mounted.



Now I can mount up the steering valve.

I bought a flat plate conversion set on ebay for a few bucks. I welded my own brackets to them. Used a poly bushing and built the tube work myself.

Both radiator hoses are off of a 2008 Cadillac Escalade. I bought both from AutoZone.

Upper = E72380
Lower = E71990 and does not fit well.

The way the lower neck is welded on my radiator puts it at a weird angle so I will need to figure something different into the equation. I'm going to take that lower hose back and swap it for something different. If I find something that works out I will update you.

I got my wheels back from powder today. I may be biased because they are mine and this is exactly everything I wanted in a wheel but I am completely excited with how my wheels turned out. The color is awesome, the wheels are awesome, and they fit my build perfectly.
