I started with the rear end, sanding away the flash, puttying a couple areas, resanding, and adding a couple coats of Duplicolor Silver. I also drilled holes in the universal shafts to allow a small piece of brass, to simulate the retaining pins.
Here you can see the small holes, 4 total.
The small piece of brass rod, cut and sanded.
Brass inserted. Mission accomplished.
