Re: how to paint engine bolts?

paint will most likely just bubble off with the heat. best bet is to spend the money and get some pro bolts, or lightech bolts. Powdercoating would also probably work.

Re: how to paint engine bolts?

I couldn't prime it and paint with a high temp flat? I bought all the other fairings bolts. I'd powdercoat but I can't take the all off at the same time can I?

You could but they may chip when you are tighting them down. If you pull them all out at the same time, you will need to drain the oil first or you could end up with a nice mess.
