Thanks guys.  Swinger is not titanium, itís raw.  I donít have time to chrome it until the winter rebuild most likely.  So what options should I consider in the meantime?  Clear powder?  Chrome-look powder?  Red powder?  Spray clear coat?

I would just use some spray clear coat. Make it easier to remove to do what you want later

Good idea Gene... Duplicolor makes a clear coat for car wheels that works pretty good, used it on some metal bench legs & its been hit pretty good with a vacuum many times & hasn't chipped yet. Also painted my swinger with duplicolor aluminum engine paint 10 years ago & it still looks as good as it did when i painted it. Can't go wrong with duplicolor.
overkill is an often underrated achievement

Great.  Threw more gear at it (currently 14-38) and will probably throw a little more at it still.  Pulls hard, love the protrax setup, the rear seems really nice too but didn't hit it 100% since wasn't running front brakes this session.

I plan to, just not finished yet - stinger needs to be fully welded up and then chromed.

Saw this in person today. I wish I could afford to cry once like that.
