Any Paint Recommendations for Rusted Lug Bolts? - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I have a 2003 95 AERO with a classic condition of rusted lug bolts. They have the tapered cone shaped insert on each bolt.
So I purchased a full set of used lugs which I plan to clean up and paint for when I put on the summer wheels.
I really do not want to install the SAAB plastic lug caps.
Has anyone had success painting the lugs? What paint holds up well while matching the color reasonably well? How were the lugs prepped for paint? Do they need to be primed?
Thanks for your thoughts.
