Horvath, wow this is weird.
I ordered some 3/8" steel rod, I'm gonna use it to make a grill for my truck. was thinking @ 3/8" to a 1/2" gap between rods. I think i'll try a piece of the rod cut to the height of the grill x 2 and bent slightly to have a little curve for the cross pieces. will have to wait till I get to playin' with it to know better. then I think I'd like to see about having it (actually them) chromed. a guy I work w/ sent some wheels to a shop in tyler, will be checking them out.
