So, I would really like to lose my square front cross bar and go with a round one like yours...

What kind of bar do I need to acquire to do that? I imagine the same outer and inner diameters, but any special king of steel? Is this something I could get at Home Depot or do I need to go to a metal shop?

Thanks in advance!
You really just need the same outer diameter as the stock bushing holders. I was going to measure it when I was home last night but forgot to. Home Depot metal will work if they have weld steel big enough, but the Home Depot stuff will be real thin so you will need to be real careful welding it. I like the thicker tube because it is more forgiving when welding.
If you are in the Portland area you could ask Ash he can get you the right metal and the right diameter for you.

Yep, I had to. I no longer had you to help my GET go fast by letting me draft behind you.

Waiting on parts, so decided to go through the wiring harness and remove any wires I don't need and get a feel for what I want to mount where.
