Finally getting mine on having a guy tig weld the bungs in for me sense i don't have a tig anymore. Then off to the powdercoater. I can't decide what color to do them in any suggestions? I kinda want them to stand out. Was thinking about red with a white powerstrokenation.com lettering.

Too keep it clean looking i would do blue bars with the tan lettering, or do tan bars with blue lettering, i think off colors like red dont look that good, paintmatched (or close) would be very cool IMHO

Good work, where did you get thoughs ends?

Other than there being no rubber to insulate the bars from the frame they look great, let me know how much in cab noise you do or dont get from adding the bars.

Nope no rubber went for a rid last night down a nasty country road and some highway driving and city driving never heard a thing. Maybe it is just me but it seems like it rides better and doesn't have that bang bang when going through the gears. I am very happy with them.

Whats done to the lightning?

If you go from a roll... hes gunna beat you, but if you go from a dig, he shouldnt be able to catch you. Im assuming your running a 275 or bigger tune?
