    Painting or not of bolts

    Car just about to start the painting process. There are a number of bolts that i am wondering what the final finish should be

    1. Door hinge to A post - painted body colour?

    2. Front Wings (K head bolts) – all painted body colour except for the four that hold the carpet pop stud plates which are raw plated finish?

    3. Closer panel – raw plated finish?

    4. Luggage hinge to luggage lid?

    5. Engine hinge to engine lid?

    6. Rear quarter bumpers - raw plated finish?

    7. Latches for engine and luggage compartments - raw plated finish.

    8. Oil and fuel flaps?

    9. Number plate panel - raw plated finish?

    All confirmation/correction/additions welcothanandrew
