The quadrant, adjusters, and stops on the F-40 hydraulic cover I am rebuilding are rusted, poorly painted, and definitely not plated, what should I paint them? June 25, 2016.
MF Silver Mist Grey is a good alternative to approximate the original zinc plating. Some shades of silver or aluminum appear too “brassy” and Silver Mist Grey is an alternative. The original zinc plating tended to loose its shininess after it oxidized a bit, and never was as shiny as many of the shades of silver that are available.
