Has NE1 replaced a CAT cab door?

Our door for the CAT skid steer got mangled. Hinges twisted, glass twisted, door skin mangled.

So I bought new hinges from CAT. To the tune of $50 each.

This am I open the boxes and I find they hinges came as BARE METAL (not painted)!

This is the first time I ever bought door hinges from CAT.

So, can anyone who has bought new door hinges for their CAT skid steer tell me if they also came as bare metal or were they painted?

Now I gotta primer them. And wait for them to dry. And them I gotta paint them and wait for the paint to dry completely. Basically a 2-3 day delay. One day for the primer. and another day, maybe two for the paint, depending if I do 1 or 2 coats of paint.

For 50 bucks each I would expect the hinges to be painted.
