    Cool, that's the same size tubing that I'll be using. I'm coming from 1/2" tubing, so we'll see how well it works.

    I bought the ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution.

    From can, applied after primer. I believe the brand is Velspar, sold at Lowe's.

    Those are the 120mm.

    Yes, I sanded, blew it off with an air compressor, wiped it down with acetone, sprayed primer, and then painted. Time consuming..absolutely. Worth it..absolutely.

    Make sure to get it as high off the ground as possible. I've ignored this factor in the past..wind = dirt + bugs.
