front coil springs

i have just won the battle of getting my front coil springs off my 1964 t-bird. they have the look of a coil spring that has been on a car since 1964! is there a good way to clean them? a wire brush seems like it would be difficult getting on the inside. can i put a clear coat on them when i get them clean or even paint them ford blue? jegs does sell a set of coils to fit the bird but if i can use these original monsters i would. thanks for all the input and keep those beautiful cars between the ditches!

figured out my own problem this afternoon. wire brushing was a snap, cleaned up real nice. i would like to put a clearcoat or a finish on them however. when i compress the spring back into the suspension will i get cracks in any type of finish i might use. my engine block is ford blue and i would love to match all the coil springs to that. it's a heat treated paint for engines. any thoughts on that for the springs?

ive used powdercoat, spraypaint, rustoleum, por15, etc. as long as the prep work is good, and you use ligfht coats on the paint, itll hold up fine.
