Hi,

I'm in Brisbane area and trying to get a Nudge bar to suit a Ford AU Series II.

Apart from the people that make it and costs too much, does anyone know a cheap place I can get these from.

Wreckers I've been too dont have any, or so they say.

Any help on this would be great.

Thanks

The brackets makes them expensive, make your own (I imagine would be very hard) and get an exhaust shop to bend the bar. They told me if I made the brackets and they just bent it it would be <$100. I ended up buying one from TJM for $400. Ring TJM and ask for a price.

Yeah thanks,

I'll give TJM a call.

If I had a drawing of them with dimensions and where the bend goes etc. I could make them up. I've got a Mig Welder.

Would you know how thick the pipes are and what diameter?

Thanks

G'day Slick,

Yeah I seen that one, I already bidded on it three times, and not going higher. Postage from Salamander Bay in NSW to where I am in Queensland is a bit hefty.

Thanks anyway.

3 inch pipe looks good, any smaller it looks like a shopping trolley is stuck in the grille

That ebay one is nearly identical to the TJM one they sell for $400. He gave me trade price though (probably because id just spent $1000 on other s**t) so may be a bit more if you just ring them up.

I gave TJM a call, yep $610.00 for a low loop nudge bar....sorry but too pricey for me, I'll make my own if I had a diagram with angles where bends go etc.
