Hi Fellow RV Builders,

After 12 years since the test-flight, I finally got my RV-8 painted! Cascade Customs and Design in Bend Oregon did an outrageously awesome job! She is a beaut!

I had them put all new cad-plated screw hardware back in after painting. I decided that gold hardware against the red, just didn’t look as finished as I’d hoped. So, I counted all the screws and had them paint the appropriate number of screws plus some spares with the intent of swapping all the unpainted with painted.

The problem is the standard steel Phillips screw driver bits seems to chip the paint in the screw pretty easily.

I thought that I’ve seen #2 Phillips NYLON screw driver tips somewhere a while back? But I can’t seem to find them now? Does anyone have a lead on Nylon #2 bits?

Thanks,

Matt Dralle

Matt,
Nylon won't be strong enough to turn those screws in nut plates. You might want to consider replacing the A/C Phillips head screws with Torx head screws [SS or Cad] from a supplier like MSC Direct or McMaster-Carr

Perhaps a plastic screwdriver toy (Amazon)

Just cover the screws with round circles of vinyl wrap (use big hole paper punch) after inserted and torqued down. With a hair dryer, the vinyl will shrink wrap into screw and be indistinguishable from paint. And when you need to remove them, the vinyl will (should) peel out easily. Or be bold. Polish, dip heads in polyurethane (very optional) and call it a design element. Nylon screws will just break off where you can't get at them.
