Hope this paint sticks to the frame as good as it does my skin. I look like a dalmation.

Yeah it'll stay on you for a while. Gotta wear gloves and long sleeves. Looks great though! I'll measure up those springs tomorrow.

I wore gloves, but short sleeves. Won't do that again. Sounds good on the springs.  Keep me posted

I soaked these in molasses and water 1/9 ratio. Took about a week to dissolve to bare metal.

Started with pre bent stainless brake lines and prebent stainless fuel lines. Stainless brake lines had all the right bends in the wrong places... scrapped it. Ran the brake lines in copper nickle.  Fuel lines worked decent.
