Rust on windshield hinge and door hinges

Thanks to this site I just drilled drain holes in my mirror which should cut down on the rust.

As for the hinges I could either buy new ones or paint my current ones, preferably black.

What does everyone suggest?

I just bought Kentrol SS hinges coated black. Heard a lot of good things about them and heard many factory hinge repainted don't turn out for the best.

Rustoleum self etching metal primer after wire wheeling the hinges, then rustoleum rattle can bedliner, ez to do ez to touch up

Use a small paint brush and some black primer on the doors themselves
