THey explain how to do "black chrome" in one of their downloadable booklets, plate them black-chrome and they'll look bright and shiny black and never rust!

Considering how bright and shiny you've got them already, that's what gave me the idea.

Alternatively, etch-primer, normal primer, satin black top coat(s) of some description - not sure about the Eastwood Extreme, i was under the impression that was very thick - might be wrong though!

Interesting stuff Chrome plated suspension could be pretty cool but possibly over gilding the Lily

The Eastwood extreme chassis comes in a spray can Dave so not that thick but meant to be pretty tough and resistant to chipping. Unlike powder coating.

It was partly tongue in cheek Mark but mainly a compliment to your cleaning of the parts.

The Eastwood stuff might be a good option but another one that comes to mind is Plasti-Dip.

Goes on like a paint from an aerosol, dries to a rubber like finish and can be peeled off in the future for any other repairs but remains tough and durable meanwhile.

I've used plasti before and it would also be a lot cheaper than Eastwood. Not sure how it would hold up long term though

Also smooth Hammerite could be ok.........decisions decisions

Good point, i've not used it before but everything i've read/seen about it suggests it should hold up well over time.

I thought of smooth hammerite but after a recent experience that was "less than satisfactory" i was reluctant to suggest it.

Maybe a combination of smooth hammerite and plastidip over the top would work.

As you say, decisions, decisions!
