    I used high temp engine paint good up to like 500* (I think). As long as you prep it right, should be ok.

    Had some spare time during open house last night to put the steering stem in. I am a bit concerned with the lack of threads available for the stem nut. I used the thicker washer on the bottom of my tapered kit bearing so that the triple tree wouldn't rub on the frame. Anyone ever have this problem before?
