    powdercoat each leaf individually. $$$$$$$

    I use a high gloss. take the pack apart and sand everything ultra smooth. primer, paint, then coat with pb Blaster white spray-on lubricant. its a dry lube that is not sticky. unlike grease or anti seize it won't hold in dirt. its very slick. VERY slick.
