Slider Project

A couple weeks ago I posted that I needed sliders http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=10304

After doing some research and talking to other D90 owners (thanks Ron!) I decided to make my own.

For the slider tubes I used 3"x3"x1/4" tube stock. I wanted them to stick out abit to act as a nerf/tree bar.

Here's some pictures of the project so far - note that I still need to apply a finish coat - I am thinking of using a rubberized undercoating for the top of the sliders to add texture.

What grade of steel did you use for the project? I've been pondering this project myself, and it seems steel selection would be important.

Nice work.

Thanks,
Rod
