What was the final cost incl. shipping?

Not sure that that Cajun is going to do it anymore due the the time it takes and cost.

I'm sure he will chime in.

I checked local companies and they said they are not set up to do this type of item :(

I thought this might be the case. There is a fair amount of labor (which is expensive) and not a lot of $$$$ to buy/replace. I had one done locally. It took a while and they did not seem excited to do any more. They quoted me $40 and they stuck to the price. It was a nice rig. Wilson Dyna lite without the vinyl coating powder coated black with tan wrap around pads. I never wore it. A fellow blue saw it and made me a offer that was too good to pass on. I basically traded it for my WV Gold.

Dropped my old school all-star off at the powder coaters this morning. Small outfit, so he doesn't batch. I should have it back soon. Fingers crossed.

That's a very underrated frame. It's light, very stout, and has good visibility. I'd stack it against anything out there, in overall performance

Thanks for reminding me that I've got one of those, and haven't updated the pads in it, yet.

I'm getting a bunch of stuff powder coated flat black, for my old '67 Mustang restoration. I'll toss in the All Star frame, just for kicks. I take a little bit of light steel wool to the bars of my shiny black frames, to cut down the glare. I'll just give this one the stealth treatment.

      In the effort to minimize the risks of concussions and head impacts, Major League Baseball Umpires advises changing out mask pads every year.
      Now, keep in mind, this is for near-constant use in "high-impact" environments (the speeds of Minor and Major -league baseballs). Also, this does not include the advanced, spring-suspension mask from Force3, the Defender, since the pads are specially designed for the mask, and the mask's springs and struts are taking a significant share of the impacting force.
      Mask pads themselves vary greatly, and it is equal parts construction, performance and feel (against your face). The two that are the most noteworthy are the Zorbium© pads from Team Wendy and the MemoryFoam pads from Wilson. Other pad sets that work very well are the All-Star LUC pads, Wilson doeskins, Wilson wrap-a-rounds (which are being phased out, IIRC), or any of the "boutique outfitter shops" (such as +POS or Honig's). 
      In fact, the lighter the mask – by using materials such as Magnesium, Aluminum, and Titanium – the more supple and energy absorbent the pads have to be. The "show ponies" from Nike, Wilson, and Rawlings1 (the Titaniums) and the "experimentals" from +POS, Champro and Diamond (two Magnesiums and an Aluminum) are heavily reliant on more-than-adequate pad sets. Diamond skimped by with woeful, paltry pads for 2-3 years, until finally forced encouraged to dramatically improve their stock pads on their aluminum mask, even though one should strongly consider using one of the premier pad sets if using a mask like that frequently.
      Does that mean get a whole new mask? Not exactly! Most of these pads are available individually. Since the pads are sold separate from the mask, then... well... naturally there are mask frames that are sold bereft of any pathetic sub-optimum pads. Three great outfitters offering bare mask frames, ready to take pads and harness of your choosing are:
      +POS – Offering its light-as-a-feather-strong-as-an-ox hollow steel ZRO-G mask frame, in silver. Lightweight, great sight lines , rounded chin guard, classic look evocative of the Nike and older Wilson frames (perhaps there's substance to the myth that Nike used the ZRO-G planform when designing their Titanium & Steel iconic masks). Ump-Attire – The Emporium Co-Op of All Things Umpire offers Diamond's DFM-UMP-iX3 mask frame, in black. Aluminum, light but unyielding, with great sight lines, squared chin guard and extended crown guard. And with it sold through Ump-Attire, it has nearly the entire array of pads and harnesses to outfit it, as well as U-A's outstanding customer support. Honig's – The Outfitter keeps their trademark K4 mask frame out there, in black. Hollow plugged-end steel affording excellent, resilient protection, with a brief chin guard (ideally suited for any of a number of dangling throat protectors), "blowback" ear guards and an extended crown guard contributing to a sophisticated look. Nice feature of Honig's site, the frame can be ordered bare, or outfitted with any of the pads Honig's has in stock directly on the online page. 1- All-Star is, unfortunately, not listed as their titanium show pony, the FM25Ti with its dual-wire eye slot and huge, radar-tower-like ear guards, is intended for catchers.
