Since rust was showing up on both my FFR Jet-Hot coated side-pipes (and the body is still at the painter!!!! and the go-kart has less than 75 miles on it!!!), I elected to send them to PHX for recoating by Custom Finishing, Inc. The crate with padding weighed 97 lbs. (61" long, 58" girth) UPS Ground quoted $69, Yellow Freight quoted $113.40 with a 40% "Yes Service" discount. The pipes are currently enroute by FEDEX Ground for $50.20. Additionally, FEDEX ground was open normal business hours, while the Waco UPS office is only open 4-7pm with very long lines. Pays to shop & compare in this case.
