I have a set that i canship you. dropped shipped from riva 3500.00. My point is like others, save a lot of money and buy them used. Paint will flake off them in one years use. I would but some used ones and strip them. Then get them jet-hot coated. you will run about 500-1000 on the pipes and 200-800 in coating. these will be brand new after your done with them and will still save you about 1000. Just thoughts. Rememeber youll be welding them in a year anyway so I would keep them bare.

I have been thinking of just getting mine refinished...powder coated, as it's pretty easy and cheap to have done. What is jet-hot coated?

It is a coating that you put on the pipes just like powder coating in a way. It is clear so you need to finish the pipes. Looks good. Keeps the pipes clean and protected from the elements.
You should just leave them bare and polish them. They will stay hotter and get hotter.

Paint stripper and then polished them. Powder coating does hide the imperfections. But these pipes are known to crack and from personal experience a waste of money to get them coated. Again they stay hotter when you dont coat them. another trick is instead of running the head water overboard, run it through the pipes. This will keep them hot. Pumping cold water through them causes them to stay too cold.
