    I've just managed to get some pvc conduit which I think is the same size as Herman's. 3mm thick and 32mm wide. I'm off to Argos to buy a heat gun and experiment a bit image.jpg

    No end result yet Alien. I don't have the quick loq attachments or the metal clips yet. I was just messing around today to see how easy it was to bend etc. That said, I was using a cheap argos heat gun and it was bending after a minute or so. I'll post again next week when all the other bits have arrived.

    Thanks Herman. What's the wall thickness of your 25mm pipe?
