Default Tubing/pipe price update

Just got off the phone with Pontiac Steel and those guys kick ass on pricing.

1 3/4" DOM 0.120 wall - $4.52 a foot (that's half of what the detroit steel places quoted me)
1 1/4" Schedule 40 pipe - ~$34 for a ~20 foot stick

Great news for me, allowed me to get more DOM and less Sch. 40. I like the Sch. 40 for stuff like door bars, seat mounting tubes, etc.

I deal with Alro in Bay City and they have the best prices I can get in the Tri Cities. And they will deliver for free, and cut for free. Other shops want a $1-$3 per cut and you pick up.

I think we should all combine orders and have hosejockey4506 work his connection for a bulk order price cut.
