From the spare parts draw - a project required nothing less than black for the seat post.  

Campagnolo never produced a Corsa C Record pillar in black but that doesn't mean you can't make it happen.   Arguably the most elegant of all Campagnolo's groupsets if not all, they were released in various finishes including the rare CENTURY grey and Croce d'Aune, but the seat pillar strangely never got the same treatment.

Century C Record Delta Brake Calipers.

 

Croce d'Aune Crankset in Graphite finish.

 

DIY

Find a near perfect 27.2 seat post - Strip, polish and post to the platers for a 'as pitch' anodised layer.

The steel fixing bolt wasn't anodised and provides a nice highlight.

I'd give the finish a solid 8.5.  Given the component was 20 years old to begin with it's a solid result.  

Anodising anything individually isn't cost effective but where this is a will, there is a bill.

I have two C-Record pillars, one on my Tommasini, one on my Casati. One bolt is like this one picture. The other is a non-hex head and requires a box wrench, I think 14mm. Any idea if one generation had these non-hex head bolts? Looks like it might be called a Hex Washer Head. I’d LOVE to swap it out as when I swap saddles I think have to carry a box wrench in my pocket on the first ride, for on-road position tinkering. It’s not ideal.
