Apart from the obvious paint touch-ups what are folks opinions on painting nuts & bolt heads?

In most cases they would have been paint from the factory,as the machine would have proberbly had a final blow over once assembled.
Painting them on your mill atleast means you dont have to worry about them rusting and staining the paintwork,or thats my opinion
