Hey guys, trying to finish up a couple projects on the jeep and need your help. I need two 4 1/2 foot pieces of DOM or CHROMOLY DOM. Also need a piece of quarter inch plexi cut and punched full of holes. I found the plexi but they want $4 per hole to drill it!! I'm in Bentonville area. Let me know if you know where i can get this stuff.

What's your application?  Polycarbonate (Lexan) is much easier to machine and has some other good attributes (...like not brittle).   I used it for my firewall. 

I have some leftover somewhere...but not a lot.  It ain't cheap but since it's easy to machine maybe it's worth the difference...?

Hey guys, thanks for the offers.   Looking for a 30 x 14 approx.  Could vary a little either way.   

Any thoughts on whether HREW would work in place of DOM on an Exo cage?

was looking for 1.75, two 48" pieces, but I think due to the time crunch I'm going to use some 1.5 available in Bentonville, may come back to the 1.75 later.

thank you for offering!

I have some 1.75" if you change your mind. I almost always have 1 or 2 sticks laying around.

I highly advise against using HREW.  Hot Rolled Electric Weld (HREW) steel tube does NOT have the same dimensional stability nor the structural strength of Drawn Over Mandrel (DOM) Steel. There are different kinds of DOM as well which you should also be aware of...

Here is one (of many) examples of wisdom on the web in this regard:
