As I'm usually too cheap to buy stainless, I've recently started
on a campain to spray all non-stainless U-bolts with Rustoleum.
I try to time the spraying so that the paint is still a bit soft when
installed with SS nuts. The nust tend to accumulate a bit of paint in
the threads, hopefully seaing the threads in the area of the nut.
I just started this, so will have to wait a year or so to comment on
