Did some plumbing on the fuel system. Added a pressure regulator and a shut off valve for each tank.

Decided to play around with the gas pedal before I put the new cable on. A little polishing, new spring and some rubber to grip the wet lead foot!

Better throw some clear on that plastidip or you'll peel it right off...within 2 trips.

Late last night....
In reality, it's all gotta come off to get it to really look good but I guess it's a good start.
Some before and after of the polishing of the hardware.

Ok. Are you talking about a clear made by PlasticDip? This was my first time using this product but I had heard it doesn't peel really easily....?

True it doesn't peel that easy if you aren't rubbing on it constantly with your foot. I'd throw some regular clear on it. Doesn't have to be their clear. It'll also give you more of satin look rather then the primered look.
