As per the title, what was the original finish on the spindles and torsion arms?

I have cleaned mine up but I donít know whatís best to finish them. Powder coat, paint etc

Any experience or advice greatly appreciated

The colour codes for a 74 pan are
L41 black for seat frames
L43 grey black for suspension parts, tinware, steering column, handbrake and gear stick

Ok so paint or raptor. I was going to go with raptor mixed with a matting agent for the chassis.

raptor is a hard wearing thicker coat of paint so as in all things buggy whatever you like as it is yours.
