The bar is made of stainless steel, my original idea was to powdercoat it black, but when the fabrication was done and I bolted it on, I liked the shiny look the steel had, and decided to have it polished. The only downside is that even though it's polished it still tarnishes slightly when it gets rained on, which means I have to clean it up with some polishing compound every time it rains (Good thing it almost never rains here in SoCal). I asked my polish guy about a clearcoat powder coat on it but he said it would give it a cloudy finish.

Approx. how much does the bar weigh? Ive been toying with the idea for a while, but was concerned a bit about weight and the only pipe i had laying around felt a bit too heavy to use for this application.
