    Even more confused now.
    Hosster says 12mm inner and Topper is saying 10mm inner, i'll try and measure the roll cage me thinks.
    Cheers guys.

    if you have mic`ed it up @10mm diameter , then that is what it is not 12mm .
    i have done mine and i used tube which was 10mm inside diameter , with a 1mm wall thickness, so the tube has a outside diameter of 12mm .
    You dont want it loose so use tube which has a inside diameter of 10mm

    Could you tell me if 13mm dia is a minimum size or could you use 12mm as 13mm seems to be an odd size in B&Q

    The stuff I bought from B&Q was 9.9 - 10mm internal. Real nice snug fit and not tight.

    12mm or 13mm internal will be too slack.

    As Topper said, I brought 12mm OD from B&Q this week and it's a good fit

    Length (mm): 1000
    Width (mm): 12
    Thickness (mm): 1





    Doesn't state if 12mm is internal or outer but would presume it's outer

    It is 12mm outer dia, 10 mm inner dia, as wall thickness is 1mm, so 10mm inner dia + 1mm wall thickness x 2 = 12mm outer/tube size.................
