Default Re: Darkening original engine bolts...

I use G-96 gun blueing to darken mine. It does a great job, and as soon as I finish with the blueing I use ATF to oil them and keep the rust away.

I never had luck with Birchwood-Casey, but a guy in our club has made some nice specialty Model A tooling and used BC to darken the parts, and they came out perfect. I must have had a bad jar of the liquid.
