Then go with powder coating... there was a matrix bike that had a sweet shiny powder coat frame... and it was a 954 as well...

Here!

You can buy a powdercoat gun for about $100. Powders are around $10 per color for a good amount. For small parts, you can use an old toaster oven. I do bigger parts in the inside "food" oven.

After this small investment, you can go nuts. I have powder coated over 100 parts on my bike. Many are bolt ends.

It is really easy, quick, almost foolproof. I like that after 20 minutes in the oven, and a 10 minute cooldown, the part can be put back on.

Attached, I did mirror black with prismatic additive on pegs, brackets, levers etc:

Powder coating is amazing.. I wish they'd start it on cars!
