I am in the process of replacing the brake lines and was able to duplicate the factory covering on the front brake lines where they cross the top of the frame.

I was able to get 1/4" ID, asphalt covered wiring loom and it worked great. Just a little more fiddling with the bends and a new fitting and it is ready to go.

Went ahead and had the spark plug conduits powder coated and got new ignition wires.

Very pleased with the PC, much better than paint, maybe a little overboard.

I am following your thread with interest. Because of your touting the benefits of an ultrasonic parts cleaner, I picked up one myself. It did a pretty good job cleaning my carburetor and I expect to use it a lot more in the future.

I was also thinking of using powder coat. Down the road for me. First I see if my engine will run without major work being done to it.
