Black hatch/door locks


Recommended Posts

Has anyone powder coated or painted the hatch or door locks?  I am going to paint my chrome/stainless trim black on my 280z but didn't know about the locks, especially the hatch lock, given the fact that it pushes in.

roughen up the metal with at least 120 grit to get anything to stick

And then plastic-dip.. maybe someone has some experience with that? 

But i think it's going to be difficult.. Maybe this,  .. there is some chemical that is used for passifying steel that gives a black end result.. but i don't know if this works on stainless steel!  You could test it i guess.. 🙂  (could be a nice endresult a matt blackish lock!)

I have seen a lot examples of blacked trim, and they all fail in a few years..  stainless is very hard.. and HARD to paint .. maybe chemical like i sayd above..
