Tracks Painting Tips?

Hi
Am finishing a Tamiya T-55A and splurged for Friuel tracks. They look great
& work better, but I'd like to ask the armor types out there how they paint
their tracks and get some good advice :-)
How about it? Any gems of wisdom?
Thanks in advance
Bob

If you are going to paint them, any good primer will do, and I am partial to Model Masters Titanium as a base color for steel tracks, as I feel rust is often overdone on a tank (unless, of course, you plan to model the Tiger II outside of Stavelot as it looks today, in which case, rust IS the appropriate color). Then weather with rust, earth mud and bare steel (Humbrol buffable metallic is really nice here) as appropriate.
