I've taken on many projects this winter and they include doing the shock absorbers, suspension bushings/ball joints, steering rack, timing belt job (six years since I last did it!), fluid changes, and the whole braking system (replacing hard lines, hoses [man, some of the date codes on them were Sept. & Nov. 1974!] and rebuild the calipers). My question is, what was the original finish on these ATE calipers? On a few Porsche-parts websites, they show them as being gold-cadmium plated. Is that what they looked like when new? Instead of actually plating them, would those commercially-available paints be suitable for them (I think Eastwood makes a series of silver and gold cadmium-simulated paints)? Thanks in advance.
