Hi, I'm new here. Was referred by a memeber of Survivor's SKS Boards. Lots of good info here.

Anyone know of a good way to finish the heads of stainless steel screws? I just put together a screw build with stainless hardware and am trying to find a way to darken them.

Thanks,
Ken

If you used the stainless button head screws, all you need is aluma-hyde II. Make sure you rough up the button with some 180 grit paper first.

Ken,

First welcome to our little corner of the web.

For stainless, you are pretty much limited to some sort of a spray on finish since you can not park or blue it.

Alumahyde and gunkote are two good choices.
