how do i get spray paint stick to zinc plated bolts without chipping off?
I tried Rust-Oleum 249322 Automotive Self Etching Primer but it still chips off.
I could heat up the bolts with a torch to melt the zinc off but that is a last resort. Any ideas?
>>
I bead blast the heads of the bolts but not the threads. Then poke holes in a sheet of cardboard to hold the bolts and paint em.
>>
rough up the surface like bead blasting guy said
