Pat. You sent me these poor bars that needed my tender powder work. HAHA. Gloss black on the bars and on the marker housing. I hope you wanted them both black, cuz thats what you got!
I first wire wheel the entire thing, then wipe them down with a denatured solvent and then toss them on a bar which goes in @ 400 for 10 minutes to get the shit burned off the surface. I pull them out of the oven, blow the powder on thick, check for contaminants and back in the oven for 30min.
