Those shock dont look bad,  if u use scourer pad or very lightly with wire wool u get rust off them springs. Its just cosmetic thing really

I've pretty sure your right...... I've cleaned them down with jizer but some careful masking and painting and they could come up nice not a fan of the chrome as it never seems to last
