SO I'm progressing along on my 71 GTV build. I was about to ship a bunch of suspension components out for black powder coating. BUT .... I just received some parts I had black zinc coated at Van Nuys plating and they are beautiful. I got to thinking about doing some of my suspension parts ( spindle assembly, dust shields, control arms ) in black zinc instead of powder coating has anyone done this? To me the thick black powder coating looks anything other than factory original and the zinc looks closer . Paint was most likely used in 1971. What are the pro's and cons? I don't care about my build being 100% accurate if it means an improvement. Zinc is hell of a lot cheaper than PC anyway.
