    I did mine in the Eastwood cadmium looking spray paint. I think they look nice.

    Grey Phosphate is the correct finish. I've used Eastwood's cast iron powder for great results.
    On another car I used weld-thru primer but that produced a too light color.

    Jim Weise did mine in phosphate a few years ago. As new.

    I had my hood hinges repaired and powder coated by Hoodhingerepair.com in Virginia. The work fantastic and the powder coating looks great. I had them done in satin black.

    Here's a pic of the hinge I powder coated with the Eastwood cast iron. In the center is a clutch linkage bracket with the original grey phosphate. Hardly a perfect match but I do like the results.
