I have just stripped the back axle down for refurbishment and I would like to know what finishes are on the various bright metal parts.i.e.
1) Nuts and bolts
2) brake calipers and handbrake brake calipers
3) hand brake compensator mechanism
4) cast metal brakcetry

All of mine have been badly painted and I cannot tell if the finish underneath is Cad plate or sheradising.

Thank you in advance
