    I should maybe call then. If thats the case, might be worth it to get the whole stick and using the rest for maybe some other project. Maybe I'll swing in tomorrow and hit the junkyard back in there while I'm at it.

    That really isn't that bad depending on the alloy. 48 inches of 6061-T6 tube 1 inch outer with a wall thickness of 0.065" comes out to $25 from https://ecommerce.metalsupermarkets....=ATR6061/34065 not counting any shipping.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    I would rather spend that $40 on one of the other projects like the convertible.
