I used a nesco type roaster for my hood hinges with thee gallons of water and 12 oz. of the dark gray phosphate . It worked great on both set of hinges. Make sure you degrease the pivot point really well before you blast them, then right into the solution.  Let it cook about 8 minuets after it stops bubbling then right to WD 40 rinse and dry three times. The next day I treated them with Barricade
  Use a thermometer, It takes awhile for the cooker to reach 190 degrees.

I used stainless steel paint as a primer, then a very dusty thin coat of cast blast to tone it down, then a very fine misting of satin black to further darken it.  May not be correct, but it looks good and should last. other than the primer coat, the others are sprayed far away so the paint gets a rough texture and is not smooth.  I did this to the hood latch too. Sorry, I do not have a pic loaded online showing this.
