Is there a paint out on the market that replicates the Black Oxide color that most of the hardware was coated with from the factory? And if so, will it hold up to high heat? Where do I get this stuff from? Thanks in advance...

Check out http://www.eastwoodco.com. They are probably exactly what you are looking for and they'll send you a new catalog every 2 weeks. :rolleyes:
But they have some excellent stuff for things like what you are doing. It isn't necessarily factory correct stuff if your into that. But it is darn close and better in most cases. They have paints, sealers, electro-plating stuff, powdercoat stuff...

If you can find it, Mar-Hyde's black satin trim paint is pretty close, and the stuff is bullet proof. PepBoys used to have it.

I have done black zinc plating on some original bolts. Looks close, just a little shinier.

Thanks for the info. I'll try and call Pep Boys in the morning being they are close. If not I'll try Eastwood. I was about to use the High temp flat Black, but got to thinking that would look kinda dark.
Tom if you are using orig bolts try dropping them into a glass with some CLR in it over night.
