Welcome to the forum. Looks like you are off to a good start. What are you using to bend your tubing? Once I finish my teardrop I want to look into getting some kinda of roller for tubing. I have a few projects in mind that it would come in handy for.

Thanks! Getting those curves actually ended up being done out of desperation. I searched the area for a roller, or anyone that I could pay to do it for me, but had no luck. What I ended up doing was kerf cutting the front and rear. With the cuts being 1/16th in width, and spaced every inch apart, it made the perfect radius for the rear. I started my started my build thread last night, but forgot to add that picture in. I'll do it now, so you can see how it worked out.
