I'm about 26 miles south , south west of Brisbane . The guy who can make these is about 2 miles down the road from me . We were talking about making them yesterday and he seemed to prefer to make them in stainless . The guy is a true tradesman and loves this sort of work . this is the guy I got to weld the aircon bracket for Waynes ute and he also did most of the rust removal . His idea is that he can produce the final product in ready to install condition rather than worry about rust in mild steel . But if there is enough interest in the uncoated mild steel ones I will try and convince him . I'll drop my rail around to him today and get a couple made up in stainless . Haydn

A decent carrier company should be fine. I had some extractors & tailpipe shipped from Melbourne to Canberra without any issues. Aus Post freaked out though.

I'd be interested in 2 taxi handrails as long as they look like the original ones.
Stainless is O.K Smiley

Thanks Haydn for organizing your guy to do these taxi bars for members. Yep I think your right now about the S/S. I have been looking around at everything stainless and appears to be not much difference in appearance and of coarse the cost factor difference to Mild steel then (Chroming $) is huge I'm Sure.
Mmmmmmmmm what do the old experienced heads think.
Stainless Steel look over Chrome finish ?
I am still unsure best way to go the decision to install a taxi bar is huge I only want to do this if this will be a permanent fixture and as close as possible to an original look and installation.
I would very much appreciate other members opinion what they would do if considering a taxi bar.

I think it's only personal preference. One of the reasons I prefer stainless in this application is because the existing chrome in the car is not new. For me, a very shinny newly chromed taxi rail could look too much like a recent add on rather than compliment the existing interior.

Haydn,
Just wondering if there were there any further plans made for production before the silly season started.
During discussion at a new year gathering I said I'd enquire about placing orders & the likely turnaround time.
I said I expected the guy would on a break now anyway & will probably have a full load for a while when he resumes.

My manufacturer had trouble getting the end plugs . Hopefully I may have a solution though . This morning I went through our local hardware store looking for ideas [mates with the manager he has a EK] and found some 24mm chrome diecast steel cupboard  knobs . They look the part when I dropped them onto the pipe ends, so I took them around this morning .Now I have a job fitting cv's to his daughters Nissan . Haydn

I had 2 until a few years ago then I gave one to a mate with a EK . I still have one but don't wish to part with it as it was standard issue with the dickie seat conversion because the passenger would find it nearly impossible to get in or out without it . But if you are serious I know someone who could make one in stainless as the chrome would be original and a little tired . Cheers . Haydn
