Before I attempt to restore the ones I already have I figured I'd ask here first;

Car is 78 Cutlass.

I'm looking for the green bolts that hold the radiator top plate and 2 core support brackets on. Also need the larger blue ones that hold the fender braces and hood latch.

I'm looking for ones that are mint/near mint.

Have good supply of desert hardware. From various '78 up A/G cars. Not all galled up and heavily rusted. Southern NM location.
Mine are in good shape. You can still see the paint on them but there's your typical surface rust on them. I'm going to clean them up and repaint them unless I can find some that are already in near new condition.

I need the bolts for the hood latch, radiator top plate, and fender braces.

I can see what's down here but NewMexGuy if all bagged up would be the way to go. Not sure, but I think some of the bolts were electrostatic coated, not so much paint. If you can paint and get the fit and finish you are looking for, much more cost effective.

Yes they definitely seem to not have been painted, at least not in the traditional sense.

Depending what you have in your area, I like the Krylon better than the Rustoleum. I have had too many issues with Rustoleum reacting negatively, orange peel, fish eyes and other issues.

Every time I do a build I do the whole engine bay. There is nothing worse than to put a fresh built and painted engine in a dirty bay. Every bolt, engine mount, fender, firewall, cable, loom, etc... Get cleaned and painted if needed. So used a lot of Rustoleum black in the past, but now switched. Been much happier with the Krylon, plus seems to hold its color better than other paints.

I may have to try Krylon again- I switched to Rustoleum years ago and never looked back. I will admit that I haven't been happy with them for a while though, mostly just the tips.

Does anyone know the absolute correct color for the aforementioned bolts? I'm assuming the blue is just GM Blue but I didn't know I was supposed to have green ones as well. Perhaps I can find the correct powder coat, which would be much better than paint.
