Aloha Darrell,

I think it's great to experiment! However, in this case, I have no idea what or how it would come out.

For touch ups, I use cold blue. It is okay only if the original park is black, if it is the green/grey/black one, the cold blue contrasts too much. Using this, I have experimented on small parts and in very insignificant areas... after achieving the finish I wanted, I now know what I can and cannot cold blue.

If the finish on the op rod is totally gone, then you might want to try or have it parkerized. Being in the mainland you can order the stuff quite easily. If it gets to be a hassle, our very own Hawk parkerizes parts and does a really nice job with a dark grey color which match most of my parts quite well....

Good Luck on whichever way you decide to go.
