Default Canopy tubing length

Good morning, traveling today and trying to complete an and order donít have the plans with me, but can somebody tell me the length of 6061 Ė T6 tubing needed for the front canopy latch bar- pin. I suspect itís about 2.5-3 feet but donít want to be short by a bit.

Email to or text to 707-479-9994 would be appreciated.

Oddly the lengths are not given on drawing #41.
However from front of front square tubing to rear of rear square tubing is shown as 53".
So add maybe 1.5" front and back = 56".
So 5 feet will definitely be long enough.

Measuring on drawing, if needs to be cut for shipping:
Ratio seems to be about 3.7
5 = x + 3.7x
x = 1.06
So 1.06' and 3.92' or 1' and 4' should do it.
But please double check yourself against drawing.
