Jim coats the airhorn and body with bronze-colored Eastwood Carb Renew. He likes to lightly coat the gasket area to make the new gasket stick better. For the base, Dupli-Color semi-gloss black paint is used. On the iridate for originality/paint for longevity issue, Jim had this to say: "Nothing replaces iridate, but that process will wear off eventually. If you decide to use paint, shoot a little clear after the color. This makes the carbs look like they were iridated. It won't fade away as quickly, and you can do your own touch-ups."
