Nice looking truck Jay, and of course blue so waterproof!

When making bumpers and side bars what do people use?
Brake pipe, solid rod, steel, brass, alu?

also is it soldered, brazed, welded glued?

Normally solid rod, but you can use brake pipe for anything that won't take an impact.
Pretty much everything is brazed or welded depending on what people have to hand.
