I'm trying to decide what to do with the parts on my Simplicity 728 restoration that don't get painted.nonpaint 728 parts I.jpeg

Shown here are the clutch rod , the engage/disengage rod & lever, and the pulleys for the mule gear. There is also a brake rod not shown. The parts are cleaning up pretty well with a wire brush. Should I spray them with clear ? What clear? Satin ? Thanks.

Eastwood makes some paints that mimic various plating types.  They also make clears in gloss and satin.  If the parts clean up really nice, I would clear them in a satin, if they don't clean up really well I would go with one of the paints.  Nice background by the way, what is it?

I usually just paint them silver or aluminum and call it good.
That looks like a 1940 Buick to me. Or maybe a Chevy?

I use the Case wheel color Argent or Silver in English. OR, have found at ACE a high heat silver paint that goes on real thin, but takes awhile to dry. It looks kinda silvery at first, but calms down after week or so drying. You DO get some of the silver stuff rubbing off too when handling at first. Lasts long time after good drying time.

Thanks. The workbench is the front fender of my 40 Chevy sedan.

40 at greer.jpeg It has Mustang II front suspension with Chevy rotors and calipers adapted. Power is a'54 235 six with a '69 Camaro three speed trans, column shifted. The rearend is a 12 bolt Chevy with 3.08:1 gears. We've had the car for 30+ years. I'm going to a rodrun in Myrlte Beach SC in it in a couple of weeks. It will be a 5 hour drive and we've done it a few times before. The car is super dependable and a pleasure to drive.

A '40 Sedan was my first car! Thanks for sharing it with us!
