With a painted barrel, I could just sand down to sound metal and touch it up, whereas powder coating would need to be entirely redone.

Talking of finishing, what would be most appropriate for the trunnion straps and other metal furniture on the carriage?
I can do 'fire blued' (like in the above photo), browned, rust blue, french grey, or painted.

Which would be most appropriate?

Black paint for all the metal work.

And unless you use epoxy or some other high tech paint, it comes off easily with paint remover when it's time to repaint.

Most of the images for this thread have fallen off the 'net but I will see if I can find a few.
