The butyl I used to reseal was the 3/8 window weld stuff

Mine are still going strong months later and no solenoid sticking thank god!

Also you don't have to take the bars out (you kind of do if one is already removed) but I actually like my set with the bars more)

I think the right paint would hold up just fine, plus I think this looks bad @$$!

then get some nice black shrouds, mmmmmmmmmm

Wonder if I can just scuff the chrome or if I need a primer...... or both?
If you can't wear it out, burn it off
