Default Clear Coating Parts

So I always read in threads that folks would clear coat bolts or screws before they put them back on cars.

And I know this is super basic but is that as simple as buying a can of this:

and spraying the parts before you install them ?

You can use VHT or about any clear coat.....Then after installation, I went back over(touch up) with clear Testors modelers clear with a modelers brush. My brackets, bolts,etc, have been done over 10 years now with no problems.

Yea, I use an over the counter rattle can of semi-gloss or flat clear coat. Only tip I have to offer is watch up for excessive build up on the threads as that can make re-installation difficult. Touching up with a paint brush with c.caot sprayed into cup works great after install.

Wire brush (power is best) and only spray the heads! Idaho Stranger is spot on
as to torque tension problems if you spray the threads, they will never rust any way.
I sometimes do an old detailers trick, spray paint on a 4x4 piece of aluminum and brush paint the heads, then your socket wont knock your coating off.

I've been using rattle can clear coat for all my restored/cleaned up bolts as well. I use various flat scrap cardboard pieces with a bunch of different sized holes to pop the bolts through so I only coat the heads.

x 1 on the cardboard trick, keep the heads up high enough to allow the clear to coat the sides of the head. Eastwood has a "diamond clear" that I have used- it works well.
