Finally got my blasting cabinet set up and working.

I used glass beads and cleaned up the lug nuts off of the 76. They don't appear to have been chrome plated in the past. I am curious about the best way to coat them now after clean up.

If I paint them what kind of paint will hold up to the lug wrench?
I could plate them with my zinc plating kit and then polish them a bit.

They cleaned up really well and I would like to keep them nice. Anybody have any ideas or experiences with these?
It looks like there is a light brown rusty patina on them.
As an aside, I tumbled them for several hours and it did nothing to remove the rust. The bead blast did the job in just a few minutes.

Thanks in advance.
