  1. What are your bolts and washers coated in? And, is that to prevent rust?

    1. Hi,
      Those nuts and washers are coated with a thin layer of shellac (locally available) by diluting it with 50%-50% thinner. Yes, the coating is meant for rust prevention due to the high humidity and wet tropical climate here in Malaysia.
