****We will be inspecting frames using a scope. If we can't see in your frame we're drilling a hole and sticking the camera in. It's up to you to follow the rules, no we will not give you the option to cut the side of your frame out to remove the tubing you weren't suppose to have. If we see that certain rules are abused, those rules will go away.****
