Anybody know off hand what size freeze-plug you can use to 'cap' 1-3/4" .095 tubing? Inside or outside is fine.

Seems like I've done this before, but sure don't remember what size it was....

Thanks

Making a tube-in-tube shear style rear bumper mount. Need to cap it to keep dirt out. Used the OEM bumper shocks before and they made a mess out of the 2X3 frame rails. Had to cut them off and replace.

Think I'm going to run a tube front bumper, but stay with the Fairmont rear bumper. Not sure a tube rear would be strong enough. What are you doing for bumpers?
