I did for my 66, replated the pivits zinc & painted the linkage bare steel. I used large heat shrink to replace the plastic on the pivots, worked great & looks original.

The heat shrink also works great for making the black plastic where the antenna mast screws in look like new, mine had marks from pliers or vise grips.

Thanks to both of you for the heat shrink idea, that didn't even occur to me. al, did you make new rubber gaskets, and if so, where do you get the gasket material?
