What is the concensus on fasteners for restoration? I am not talking about AMA caliber rules, but in the past I have used stainless fasteners for appearance. It absolutely drives
me nuts to have nice paint, polished metal, etc. with all the bolt heads turned brown in six months.
Critics of stainless fasteners cite torque values, stretch Vs tensile strength. I don't build alcohol burning drag bikes so I am not concerned about that.
How do you guys handle this issue or non-issue? Is there a product to put on hardware to prevent the normal oxidation? Stainless? Who cares?
