Another Buggy frame and stiffening spaceframe augment, just tacked together right now, and a LOT more complicated than it looks. lots more tube and bracing to go. The main upper horizontal section is one piece almost 6 metres long

Are you putting a diagonal in the box by the 'doors' there?
If not, it would make it much stiffer, and only needs to be some thin-wall stuff.

I have a few now, old faithful tubela, new fangled yanks, but it's not about the machines, its about the formers. I have done a lot of modding them over the years. You could use any old crappy bender like the awful machine mart ones if you made your own formers
