Default U-Boot Flag Pole Project

Helloo,
I hope this is a good spot to post this. I am working on a little project for my little (man cave) to display my collection. I am creating a U-boot flag pole from scratch with what I believe is an original flag pole top swastika, it fits the picture I found on the net, dont know if it is KM related or just a standard pole top. Here are the beginning pics of the project.
Also, if it is an original, should I leave the original finish or paint it the KM grey.

Thanks for any help.. will post more pics as it develops.

Nice job Van, with the Nazi cross finish if it is original (not my field) then I would say don't touch it as that's its history.
