    Thanks for posting, have you used these products to restore old bolts and fasteners? How well does it work?

    What does the fluid film bring to the party Chuck? Does it make them shiny or helps resist rust?

    I have 2 bottles of Palmetto Zinc Phosphate sitting here....just trying to find the time to plate some hood hinges lol

    WD40 after plating is what most guys use

    It works very well. Easy to do on the stove. Prep by glass beading or other thorough cleaning is important. Many parts beyond just fasteners were phosphated

    The zinc phosphate leaves the metal with a medium grey, no shine finish. A good example is the hood hinges on a correctly restored 69-73 Camaro. Also the hood release mechanism was zinc phosphated. Manganese phosphate is darker, almost black but not quite. Also not shiny. No gloss completely flat finish. The oil, whether Fluid Film or Boeshield or WD40 is used to prevent rusting. The plating has some rust prevention, but not much. The oil soaks in and will give the part some gloss.

    Here's a YouTube on the process:
