I never thought of using plasti-dip, that might've been a better plan.
at least I can take it apart easily if I upgrade my CDI at any point.

the sad fact is that in southern ontario lowes is no worse than anyone else, but still a ripoff. Not sure why but hardware stores have a serious case of suck around here.
I spent three months trying to find a hardware store that sold 14g galvanize steel wire before I gave up and found it on amazon. the only place I could find that had any only had is in 50ft coils without a spool inside of them for like 4 or 5 dollars a foot. After I bought the two units they had they NEVER restocked them.
