I hear you, I'm pretty much going to be doing this myself. Gonna use allthread as jacks at 4 places so I can adjust things on a micro scale as I weld in the replacement posts.
I'm thinking 1" schedule 80 pipe is looking very interesting right now. Here are the dimensions:
OD - 1.315
ID - .936
Wall thickness - 0.179
lbs./ft. - 0.424
Yea I was looking at 11 ga. The pipe is a LOT cheaper than the square tubing.
The nice thing about using the thicker material (other than it's stronger) is when welding you can favor the thicker side a bit and flow in the weld to the lighter material without having to get in as much of a hurry to keep from blowing through.
