Question how to paint bolt heads?

kinda tough to find a section for this but i need to paint capped allen head bolts. which is the hard part, they need to be painted after the install so i can fit the allen key inside. i need something obiouslly somewhat permanant and a satin or flat black finsih would be great.

ANY IDEAS??

Re: how to paint bolt heads?

Stick um in a piece of styrofoam/cardboard n put an old allen wrench in it.
Then just spray it with whatever. My answer seems kinda but so does the question.

Re: how to paint bolt heads?

You can powder coat them as long as they don't go crazy and apply too much. Even those black oxide bolts will rust though I've found.

black oxide coated bolts WILL rust. powder coating them wont let you fit the allen key in them to tighten them on.

i dont think it seems like a stupid question. i just dont want black everything and silver bolt heads

im sure someone has done this

Yeah those Allen bolts do rust.

I would just bolt down what ever you need to and then hit it wil a little spray bomb. If they are a bolt thats gonna come on and off a lot your pretty much stuck with stainless stuff.

Where are ya in michigan?

Re: how to paint bolt heads?

at work we usually put the bolts in and use a touch up brush on the bolt heads

ok.....how are you going to prep them to accept paint?

you are in a catch 22 situation....either leave them silver....buy black oxide(which may rust over years).....spray rattle can over the stainless(which will rust and peel off)...sand blast and powder coat and force your allen head into them...use a touch up brush(will rust and delam)

which way are you going?

you are in a losing situation no matter what you do

buy black allen heads...replace when they start to rust.....that is the most feasible thing to do

it's not rocket science...i really can't believe this has to be spelled out!

Cool, another MI guy. Welcome to the site. Check out the Oaktown Trucks site if you're looking for some more local guys.

There's always the option of painting some Spectre covers. Then just pull them if you ever neer to remove the bolt. You could always paint over stainless bolts too. Just have to be sure to use anti-seize compound.
