Exclamation I need steel!!! (tube and plate)

To do my frame extension, sliders and shackle hangers, I need some steel. The availability and prices I'm getting at SSS Steel here in Houston are nuts. (they only offer 20' sticks, only have 3" OD, 4x4' square plate, etc. etc.).

Here is what I need:

1. About 10' of 2" x 4" x 3/16" rectangle tube (to make the frame extension). [Triple-S quoted me $230 in 20' stick, minumum length they sell]

Call me ghetto, but I used 3" for my spring hangers and added washers to line them up.

That's awesome, I really appreciate the offer. Is the list above not specific enough? What other info can I provide? I'll PM you my number - no rush on this.

Responded to your PM - sorry for the delay in calling you. I'd be glad to see what you have while I'm at it.

As soon as I can remember what it is. I'm in no hurry for the cash, and if I can find any other parts that you need, I'll let you know.

Great, thanks. Could you save a little 1/4" for me? Just a few 5"x7" or similar-sized pieces or something - I'll use them for fish plates, etc.

Bump for the 2x4 and slider stock.

I might be able to snag some 2"x2" OD 1/4" wall square for sliders. I just made my rear bumper out of it. Don't know if there's any left laying around.

I'll grab some 1/4" for ya if you need it. Got plenty small pieces.
