Haven't been here for a while, being to busy with work, health, etc...
Anyways, In need of just a simple metal chassis tube I measured an outer diameter of one inch. Over here in Holland I they measure the inner diameter of the tube. The half inch tube would be smaller and the 3/4 inch tube has a larger outer diameter.
Anyone knows how that works in UK and if it's easy to get hold of? Eager to get the Caterham up and running, but it already has a rewelded chassis tube, which sits in the way of the throttle system.
Was thinking of rerouting the chassis tube that's running under the throttle bodies.

Give Arch a ring, they made the chassis (probably). http://www.archmotor.co.uk/

It depends on the "schedule" or wall thickness of the pipe, maybe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nominal_Pipe_Size will help you to reverse dimension what you need.

Thanks. Bit in a hurry at the moment. Decided to get a tube just a bit smaller. I'm planning on having a reskin in one or two years anyway, so Arch, or whoever I bring the car to, can fix it then. Just desperate to get the car up and running again.
