I do not have stainless so I put a big magnet on the bolt head. Keeps everything together. I did use masking tape at one point to corral the washers and nut and I still find remnants of the tape stuck to the nuts years later.

painters tape over the bolt works great, also helps with fender bolts. It doesn't leave a residue like duck tape can do. Can tape them all at once then don't need to keep going back and forth once under the truck . I use 1 1/2 inch painters tape and just a little piece over each bolt. When done just pull it all off and done

Little bit of grease sticks them all together long enuf to tighten. Quick wipe down and on to the next
