Bronze-coated iron outdoor sculpture

I am replying to Sarah-Jane Rennie's question about bronze coated cast
iron sculpture.  We have recently been contacted by a museum that owns a
contemporary brass coated steel sculpture.  Is that close enough?  The
brass was braized onto the surface.  We are currently figuring out what
to do, which includes removal of iron corrosion, replacing elements,
straightening elements, filling bullet holes (this is downtown Los
Angeles), and most importantly, coating.  No answers yet, but if this is
anything close to what you are working on, lets talk!  Anyone else have
ideas?  The artist is Bertoia.
