E Brake Cable bracket finish question
« on: January 28, 2012, 02:47:04 PM »
 ???  I soaked the front E brake cable, conduit, firewall bracket (the one with the forked end) equalizer lever (flat inch or so wide bar) and idler. I found in the forum that the conduit should be natural. What about the forked firewall bracket, idler, and equalizer lever ? Should those be natural too ? Thanks for the help.

The outer jacket on the cables have always looked plated or treated rather than natural.
