Default 50w reel backings

I have these reel backings that have gotten corroded and chipped off paint. Tried every local shop in town and no one has them. If it were you.... How would you re-finish these?? Just looking for a black paint finish like they were originally. Drop your thoughts and tight lines!

I'm thinking of soaking in a reel cleaner or something, then sanding to texture the metal.. maybe a auto quality spray paint after? This is where I need some guidance. Thanks.

I’ll second this. Keep it simple.

If your gear is getting that corroded you've got bigger problems. Might I suggest.....
