1. Screws rusting on my 15 rubicon cowl and windshield pillar

    I want to replace my rusty screws with rustproof ones.Not sure if I'm even naming the area where the screws are correctly.its a total of 12 screws.4 of them have plastic washers.the others are bigger. My question is where can I find a rustproof set.My guess would be stainless steel or can I get them in black like oem that won't rust?

    If so use a sharp edge tight fitting torx. Put the torx in and heat with a torch or inductive heater… to flow the loctite then unscrew. You might go between tighten and loosen and soak along the way with PB blaster. Keep hot until you get a few turns out.

    These strip easily.

    I would like them to be black but I guess if I can't they will be stainless steel
