I'm underway with my B 175 restoration. Is it best to use Stainless steel nuts and bolts ( bright) or Zinc plated ( less noticeable ) or paint them black ( poor finish and will corrode quickly I guess ) Thanks  Kevin.

I allways use stainless as I don't want to be for ever replacing nuts and bolts .
