I got the anti seize and some bolts today. I was unable to get the stainless hex cap bolts that I wanted and ended up just replacing like for like. Both HD and Lowes did not have the 1.25" bolts in the hex cap. They went from 1" up to 1.5" but nothin in between. Anyway, I went ahead and put a coat of high temp engine paint on the heads of the new bolts as a little extra insurance as well as stainless lock washers, which seemed to be the main issue anyway. I put a little paint on a couple spots on the risers that had some rust too. Looks better even if they aren't stainless.
