ok as most of you know I live in the land of palm trees , senoritas and a strange fiery glowing orb in the sky.
Said orb softened my 1.8m s/s roughly midway in the motor press up against tools putting 1cm kink in it. Was wondering if any of you have cut these down successfully? Perhaps I just need 2 end stoppers?

I cut down my 1200 into 750 and 450. I got some new stoppers and drilled a couple of holes for the stopper plugs to sit in....just used a fine toothed hacksaw and was a fine job

Most disturbing thing I saw was just outside of marbella three lanes going either way with a dog who had made it somehow up against the concrete central barrier terrified trying to scale it into the path of another 3 lanes doing 120 kmh :( I didn't look back.

@A.plasterer, don't use the electric cutting disk - the heat transfer will twist & warp the blade. @Pug is right.
Also, 9" ain't all that great...the missus screams her head off evertime we do it

I made an 800 and a 400 from a 1.2. Had a speedscam that split so used the stop ends from that to finish the others off. Just used a mini reciprocating saw with a metal cutting blade. Took about 5 mins to do. POP
