I believe they are a grey phosphate color, I had mine plated by Steve Gregori a couple years back. They are not supposed to be black.

Thanks. That is what I though also. I wonder how some of this new spray can paint that is supposed to look like bare or plated metal would work out? I have the entire front end off and it will be easy to do the hinges now. I also am thinking about sand blasting.

I use the Eastwood's Zinc Phosphate or the Seymour Cast Blast, as they are both good quality and good looking paints.

^ I agree, Eastwoods products are high quality. I've had excellent results with their products.

I too have used aluma blast for my trans and bellhousing form eastwood and it came out great. The spray gray replicates bare steel and I have had great results. The zinc phosphate I have not used, but isn't that a more gold color? I know the Hood latch is supposed to be plated too and is not black.

Zinc Phosphate is a dark grey, almost black. Suppose to be gun barrel color. Here is a link to the color Finishes ? HoodHingeRepair.com
