What do you lot use to make up the bars that hang your back boxes?

Is it just standard iron bar or is there a certain type i should get that's easy to bend and weld?

Gonna have a pop at the Elise backbox this weekend and need some bar to hang it.

What do you suggest?


Cheers,

10mm or 12mm bar should be fine.
Hate to say it, but last time I went to my local B&Q, they were stocking quite a few 1m lengths of steel (small tube, box section, flat etc) and sure they would have some suitable.
Pretty expensive tho, some were 5 per length!!

8mm threaded rod? easy to bend and weld and comes in 3m lengths. As its threaded you can put nuts and washers on it and bolt it through the boot floor if you need to!
