I am not aware of any bronze in the KT lock assembly. Everything on the assembly in my trailer appears to be pot metal. The handle looks like brushed aluminum. The body of the assembly is painted to match the trailer.

Ya, I'm not sure what to call it, but you could take your fingernail and flick the top coating off and it was a 'gold' colored looking coating.
Still need to know what kind of silver paint I could use to make this lock look semi-normal.

See if any of this helps you - high build primer you can get at an auto parts store:
