I've used Pete Eastwood several times. His dropped bars are spot on, fit perfect. Contact him on here by pm. Pete Eastwood He usually waits until he has several to drop.

Thanks for the feedback. I've met Pete - good guy. But having a hard time getting ahold of him. Maybe he's just busy.

Always been a challenge for me to catch him by phone. I've had better luck stopping by his shop.

I used the dropped '32 bar from Speedway....polished stainless....finally got it to fit,
off everywhere. Solid stainless no tubing , you can lift the truck with it.

Several Years ago when I couldn't get a response from Pete I just gambled and sent him some bars with money and a return tag so he could ship them back. It took a while but one day they showed up dropped.

Curious, what's a ballpark price Pete gets to drop a bar?

I did the same last year. Put a note and cash in the box. 3 months later I got them back dropped. Always worth the wait.

Ah, I didn't realize Andy was doing these. I should have realized he would too.

Do you own a torch? Why not do it yourself?

Besides a torch you need a fixture and a press.
