Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Dropped off a pile of parts to be phosphate coated (Parkerized) just like GM did. Hood hinges, hood latches, door striker plates, 72 front hooks, bags of bolts/screws, tie rod bracket, etc. For these parts it's an authentic redo that's cheaper and more durable than powdercoating or painting. $180 for the all shown to be cleaned, bead blasted, and Parkerized at a local facility that does 15k gun barrels monthly for the Ruger Co.
