Hi Sean

You literally read my mind. Was just contemplating my lack of chrome "deluxe" Mafac hardware to pair up with these, then realized I could probably more easily go have the bits chromed-up rather than seek out more NOS stuff! Maybe I'll try one of those brush-on kits.

I'd love to see how yours turn out. I made quick work of the first of four arms last night, next up will be more of an assembly line approach... can't wait to try out those new Kool-Stop blocks.
