After hours of tedious masking, I finally painted the cases. 13 years and 33k hard miles had taken its toll on the stock finish and the HD texture black looks 100x better. The paint is a bit pricey at $23.50 a can but after seeing the results, it was well worth the cost. Laid down very evenly and was dry to the touch within 15 min. Masking tape pulled clean and everything was cured at 180 degrees for an hour.

Also cut the rest of the brackets (except the master cylinder bracket) off the subframe and got it mocked up and the new shock installed.
