I agree with Kev, Herb. Or, do the fins first with a "chrome" colour (looks more like aluminium anyway) then mask them up and shoot the black.

My valve covers are aluminium but I shot them completely with chrome first, then shot the mirror black in between the fins...

Thanks mate. They are Cal Customs that looked like crap when I got hold of them. Had to modify the right hand one so I could put the crossed flag logo and make it look similar to OEM.

True but I think the original support looks like an after thought. I like the look of my gas strut and will post a pic later...
