The first clutch arm I had was bare metal, and bent. The square was all loose on the shaft. Then I bought a new, chrome arm. I didn't like it - the chrome was like "show chrome" and it looked too good. I sent the arm (with a couple other parts) all the way to Illinois to get the chrome stripped off. It cost me shipping there and back - and I got charged a pretty good fee just to strip all the chrome.(higher than last time) Then I had to bead blast and wash everything anyway. Then I painted my clutch arm silver - and I still didn't like it. Then I was told it's supposed to be BLACK ! So, I sanded off the silver and painted it black, but I used gloss black - and it was too shiny again. Now I just got done rubbing steel wool on it - now it looks correct. I need a serious evaluation.
