Just my opinion, but I think that painted carbs look like crap after a short time. I think you can buy that original finish coating for the holleys.

While I agree with Poncho about looking like crap - if you are positive about doing this, find an epoxy like Krylon. It will at least have a chance against the nasties in gasoline.

Bead blasting is dangerous to carb - you get some media in some little port or change its' size by being too aggressive, you then have junk.

Holley offers a restoration/rebuild service - but not cheap. It also includes powder coating and chroming

If you want color why not powder coat them...?

Good hobby system here

Nice thing about it you can use it for all kinds of things... Do some for your buddies and so it pays for itself...

Check with the Eastwood Co. they have a coating that will make them look like they did when they were new. They also have some faux anodizing kits in different colorsand you can make them look anodized .
