Iím going to apologize up front if the following is an ignorant question, but I just bought a forward control kit for my BB from fatty0100 that came off of a Speedmaster. I would like to paint the rods, etc, black to match my BB. Anything I need to know??

Just throwing this out there more for conversation than anything. Yes, powder coating is a good way to go, either professional or yourself as others have stated. If you can afford it, go for it.
Alternately, you can get excellent results from a rattlecan that will be nearly as durable. I'm the king of ratlecan painting, and have done so on my bike. The key is prep work.
Start with a fine grit sandpaper to "scuff" the metal. This will give the surface a "tooth" that will enhance adhesion.
Put on some good latex or nitril gloves and clean all of the parts with Acetone and a clean/fresh rag. Place parts in a clean, dry place.
Use a quality metal primer (in a can). Give a series of light coats onto the metal and allow to dry.
Use a quality paint. Give several light coats onto the metal for an even coat - allow about 20 minutes between coats. Final coat should dry for 48 hours before handling any serious way.
Total cost is under $30.
