Once the plan was set, Rod Foutz marked the center of the vehicle (arrow), then measured, eyeballed, and used a homemade lockable angle gauge to determine where to cut and bend the tube. Often, the eye is more important than the tape measure to make the cage look right. Make sure to always cut tubes at least 6 inches longer than you think you'll need 'em, because it's better to trim to fit once all the bending is done than to try and get it perfect the first time.
