    PRESTO BLACK" call these people here, you dip in and let it sit and then run clear water over it. and works PERFECT< make sure you spray with sating clear to keep the finish...We all is this all the time or send them out to have them coated in black oxide. Neither is cheap....

          Can you clean up with a wire wheel or sand blast and then just paint this solution on? Thanks for the information !

          I use G-96 gun blueing that I found on ebay. It did a great job on my barn fresh rusty rifle. Just put a small rag over the bottle, tip it upside down to wet the cloth, then wipe it on the parts. The parts must be clean and dry, and I heated the parts with my Milwaukee heat gun, though I don't know if that is needed. After rubbing the part with the blueing for a couple minutes, I wipe it dry, then wipe it with ATF. Three years later my gun still looks great.

          If you use a clear spray on bolts, be sure to use satin so it looks natural, and not too shiny.

                You can click on "EDIT" to make corrections. I have to do it quite often to correct a wrong key stroke, when I find it after posting.

                      I must have a bad bottle of the Birchwood Casey gun blue because it didn't work for me, but I have seen excellent results on a club member's homemade tools.
                      Guess I'll have to buy some more and give it another try.

                            So is this hardware that most of the vendors sell not correct for 1929 and older? I'm confused...

                              YES and this IS what you need especially for fine point, on you heard to read it, you will love it...

                            The book that you have (Standard Hardware ) is a reference book . It is compiled from original Model A Parts books . The only place that has some bolts and nuts that are close is Roy Nacewicz Enterprises in Allen Park , Michigan although some of the suppliers have bolt and nut kits they will not pass fine point judging . What I am showing are some original fasteners that were rusty but not badly pitted that I cleaned up and put a new raven finish on them . The photos only show some of the fasteners that I have finished . For those that are not into fine point I would suggest that when you restore your car and are going to use all new bolts nuts ect save the good stuff as someone is always looking for the original .
