Did you do any prep on the pipes such as beadblasting the insides or the exterior?It's not really that unwieldy. The pipe that goes to the vertical cylinder comes off.
I think the box that I put them in was about 12x18x24 and I just packed them in styrofoam peanuts. (put the small parts in a zip-lock bag and tape over the open ends so the headers don't get filled with styrofoam)
I got them back in like a week and they came back in the box that I sent them in.
The perfcoat site also says to clean and disassemble parts to avoid extra charges.
What did you do in the way of cleaning? Are we talking about finding a place to sandblast or is it just a matter of cleaning it off with a scotchbrite pad?
I just sprayed some kitchen cleaner on them an hosed them off. Remember, they do all kinds of automotive parts and I think that they just don't want to get a big greasy mess.Did you do any prep on the pipes such as beadblasting the insides or the exterior?
(siiiiiigh) ........that's what I was afraid of.
Ah well, it's ONLY money, right?
The old woman gets wind of this though and it'll be a bed roll in the garage for me!
