    I used a spray paint designed for refinishing metal barbecues. worked pretty well, not perfect and I assume wear and tear will give it a patina.

    Go to a John Deere Tractor dealer and get a pint or spray can of Blitz black. With the pint version you can mix with Japan lacquers if you can find any and some corn starch. Should get you very close. It is a lot closer than Rustoleum.

    Google will give you lots of hits for "blitz black".
