Default Baja Dooblebug or Dirtbug Tubing Size

I have tried to search and sadly did not find this info (although no one may have it yet). I have the new style dirtbug and want to extend the frame which means cutting it up and bending and welding tubing. While I have not started this yet and I know I can take a sample with me to the metal place and get the correct sizing but have not started cutting it up.

What I wanted to know if anyone remembers the tubing size (ID/OD) so that I can order some as well as get plugs (I think they are called plugs but the solid metal put inside before welding the two tunes together.

Thanks!

I extended my doodlebug db30 awhile back and posted it here. I’ll see if I can find the info.
