2. If I go with the painting the originals silver, is there a color/brand paint I should use?
3. CCOT has aftermarket black powdercoated latches that I could paint silver. Anyone done this successfully?
I shooting for an orginal look. Thanks. Doug
How original are you going for? I took mine off, hit on the wire wheel, and sprayed them with some silver hard hat rustoleum about 8 years ago and they are running strong and working great.
