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.
