Hi folks now that i have made my tail gate chain hooks ,.are the chains and hooks painted ,? is it body colour ,or black or just left unpainted, Many thanks for all your valued help. Cheers Gerry(NZ)
I guess it depends on the look you're trying to achieve. I don't know if they would have been painted from the factory or not. Surely somebody smarter than me could tell you.
One of these days I'm going to get around to putting the chain on my tailgate, and I will probably paint it black unless I can put it together without ruining the plating.
If your chain is bare metal, it will most likely rust. I would probably look into doing a blued finish if you don't want paint. That will at the very least help keep rust in check.
I could swear I posted this information this week!
Hi Folks ,Thankyou for your infomation. Yes Larry you did send me info about the chains and the covers ,But no mention about colour but there was a reply either Black or body colour. many thanks to you all Gerry(NZ)
Even if your pickup was NOT painted black, it seems to me if the chains were on the bed when it was painted, the chains would mess up the paint. Therefore my guess from a logical standpoint is they would be black.
Hi folks well all the chains are painted and on the deck now, i painted them black ,and yes they look very smart.against the maroon bed. Thank you all for your help. Gerry (NZ)
