Air Dump Car Question...


Jack Burgess
 

I'm in the process of painting a model of a Western air operated side dump
car. These cars had an air cylinder on each side of the frame to raise the
body for dumping. My question...should the piston rod coming out of these
air cylinders be a "shiny" steel color similar to the steel piston rods you
see on hydraulic construction equipment such as backhoes or some other
color?
