    you could powdercoat the bolts but not the threaded areas as long as they are not a super tight fit thru the plates as the powdercoating will add a certain amount of thickness to them.

    Clean the threads with a wire brush and use mineral oil to keep them from rusting again.

    You could spray it down with food grade silicon. That should keep it from rusting.

    I’m gonna get the bottom frame and the wing nuts powder coated. Plate bolts I’m just going to use pure mineral oil on.
    Thanks for the ideas.
