All of my fender bolts and other engine bolts are spray painted over engine black. I need to replace them while I have the engine out. What were they originally? I see silver colored (are they Zinc?) and Cadmium (gold color) for sale.

the fender bolts along the hood gap were Gold color Cadmium.

most of the engine bay Apron bolts are cadmium gold.

the engine bolts are usually silver colored. some had a red oxide coating on them. you can check out AMK products http://www.amkproducts.com/
