Like this? (Picture below) I was gonna leave a space not painted at the bottom above the seals but if a layer of spray paint won’t affect the seals then I wont have to?Hit them with a scotch bright pad. Rough up every inch of them this is needed for proper adhesion. Use Rust Oleum, takes a while to dry but holds up really well. Friend of mine did his Sportster forks 3 or 4 years ago and they still look great.
They're not chrome. The fork tubes are stainless steel.I was wanting to do this also and thought about getting an old fork and try using gun blue on it. Don't know how it would hold up but could be touched up easily enough. You tube shows that bluing chrome gives a neat look. I wanna see it in person though before doing my forks.
nope Hard Chrome, unless you have some other information to link to? Link to get forks re-chromed as example.They're not chrome. The fork tubes are stainless steel.
