I have no idea, but it should be fairly cheap... like $50 if I had to guess.

media blasting might smooth them out a little more... that'll probably cost more though.

And it's Chuck the Chizzle.

there is a place in Buler (U-Spray) that allows you to sand/media blast what ever you bring to them as long as it is clean. I would call up C&S performance in Butler or other machine shops (Borchardts,Kilpatricks) and see if they offer a hot tank / acid dip.
