 I forgot to mention the oil I use is called Dri-Touch and is sold by Birchwood Casey. It goes on wet and dries to touch in a couple of days. This is good so it doesn't become a dust magnet by staying wet.

What I did on my driver's hinges (and other phosphated parts), was to use "stainless steel' spray bomb as the primer, then a light misting of cast blast.  Spray the cast blast far away from the hinge, you want a 'dry' looking coat, almost like it has imbedded dust.  keep applying dry coats of cast blast until the sheen (2-4 should do it) of the stainless steel is minimized and the color of the cast blast darkens the hinge.  My .02  I don't have a pic uploaded, nt sure if it would show accurately anyway :)

I will have to check that out Mike! Used the Birchwood Casey products (bluing) and they seem pretty good.

Never tried that Daniel. You use or know about it?
What I'm really liking so far and have used it a lot is 'Rust Prevention Magic'.
Super easy to use and have coated bare castings and no rust to date but time will tell.

Chick I've personally never used Fluid Film but heard good stuff about it thru the grape vine at a show last year.

I have been using it since the mid 80's. It goes on wet and dries in a couple of days. I apply it with an artist brush and spend about an hour dabbing bolt heads and other parts including phosphated components. I used to apply it twice a year but have been slacking off due to other interests. So there have been parts not done in years and still look great (no oxidation) so the film must still be there. I highly recommend it.
