Default How much tube do I need

Looking to build a 25.2 tube chassis el camino. Was curious if people had an idea of how much tubing I will need to buy. Thoughts being 150 feet of 1.5 inch. I'm building most of the suspension points front and back clip from 1.5 inch. Thinking 60 foot of 1 5/8. Maybe 40 foot 1 1 1/4 and 20 foot of 3/4. Am I really far off in this

You'd be a better choice as I'm straight down 95 from you . I need some time to get to this stuff as 22 ft sections are not easy to move for me right now .

It's not getting cut . I just can't get to it easily right now . Probably next week . This is all 4130 N stuff . I bought extra and never did anything with it . Did not wipe it off and is probably 30 years old . Mill slag/scale and surface rust . Mostly 1 5/8 but some smaller tubes as well .
