Klem,
I'd also suggest using a small plastic washer that may also help and can not hurt.

Thanks Donna for my 1st "sell side" example! And I agree you should do that if you would like

ETI has built around 1,000++ trailers! Now IF the bounty on everyone was paid that would be 250,000 smackers. I guess they all know that you must report the first dollar for US citizens. It looks like you don't have to add it to taxable income until you receive $600. and I think that's how most people handle it.

I'm not claiming to be an expert on any of this. But it may explain why some people stay on-line so many hours and seem to play a little slam Klem with twisted topic funny ... not ... posts.

My goal is to have an adult relationship with any/all of you. But I love some good ole kid fun when I hook up to the Escape

Actually it is $250 Canadian dollars which is about $200 US. I told ETI to credit my fees against my purchase price and got a substantial reduction when purchasing BlackJack. Rebates and or Birddog fees are handled differently for US tax code purposes and it can be argued they are a reduction in your purchase price.
BTW, thread stray happens so much here that most moderators close their eyes these days.

Klem - I hope you don't seriously think that off topic posts are any sort of "slam" on you. Some of us (much to the dismay of some moderators) like to inject humor and try to keep it light and fun around here.

Seems to be the situation but it does get a little tedious when you are trying to follow the content of the OP. Wish more people who want to make misc. comments would post in the off-topic thread.

Now that I've looked closely at my screw heads I realize that the front, white frame window with white screws looks to me much more attractive than the black frames with the plated screw heads. So if I'm ever lacking a project I'll paint them black with Tremclad. Lots of good experience with Tremclad and I'm sure that it would stay on for a very long time.

A plastic washer will help, and can't hurt, but any part of the screw shank or thread could cause galling when in contact with aluminum. I would suggest dipping the new SS screws in a lacquer based paint or clear-coat, and letting them dry prior to reinstalling if you're really concerned.

As a moderator with a great tolerance for threads straying off topic, I consider the forum a conversation. And, just as in a conversation around the campfire, over beers, I'm not going to tell somebody to shut up.
When it becomes apparent that we are on a totally different topic, I will move posts to a new thread title.

Thanks for the tip, I have coated heads before too, but I'm hoping that after replacement we'll never think about the screws again.

I found ACF-50 by Lear Chemical Research Co. to work best for 'everything' to lightly lubricate and protect 'anything'. If you search it you will find it sold at aviation supply houses for around 12$ a can.

Thankfully I stumbled on it years ago, they actually sell it in 50 gal drums and you can spray your entire aircraft with it to stop corrosion for 2+ years. Including airframe and electronics.

Glenn and I are both on point.. BTW I hate Rustoleum, no matter what the label says on the can. It doesn't STOP rust... it just hides it (hotrodder who loves POR-15).

It works great if the surface is rust free and primed with a rust inhibitive primer first. A bit impractical for screws.
