I am going to have my quick jacks chromed plated. I bought plated acorn nuts to finish off the quick jack hardware too. As per Jeff K. suggestion.

I was wondering if it would hurt to have the hood and hardware plated?

Maybe the side pipe hangers too?

What have you guys plated?

Hi Jason,

My exhaust hangers were stainless, like the pipes. if I had to coat them, then I would do it with the same thing I would coat the mufflers with.

I had my hood and trunk hinges powder coated black to match the chassis.

I used FFR over riders. Cheaper to purchase these than get local chrome shop to do quick jacks.

Cheers Nigel

Now that I think about it the exhaust hangers were finished.

Yes maybe powder coat is better.

I will think about.

Thank you Nigel

I’ll be looking for a local shop to put a polished stainless finish on my full width roll bar and my side pipes... and the quick jacks. Those are the three for me.

Got polished stainless steel from a forum vendor. Was cheaper than chrome plating.

Definitely cheaper and easier. I saw some on one vendors site.

Can you let me know were you got your quick jack? PM if you want.

I have been debating on if I want the solid pipe guards or the homey comb versions. I like both a lot.

Don't remember will look to see if I have a receipt in the Cobra bills draw.

Was Finishline set of 4. Looks like price has not changed.

Yup that's what I saw. I do not know the rules with the vendors and I did not want to upset anyone. Since you did not mention specific names I followed suit. Lol

I will order them. The grommets too!
