    But I did get a little inspiration, and dropped in the engine/trans to start the new plumbing and wiring required with the updates. Alot of the braided lines are 10 years old, so time to replace some hoses. The wiring will be mostly the same as before, other than a few minor changes such as the front mounted fuel pump and generally cleaning things up to look better. The radiator sits roughly 5" lower than before, so I need to find an inline filler cap housing so the cooling system works correctly.

    What did you paint the bars with? and what was your prep process?

    All the round tube is painted with Rustoleum "hammered" finish silver spray paint. Just scuff with a Scotchbrite pad then wiped down with wax and grease remover. Great adhesion and coverage, and easy touch up if there's any chips.
