As i remove the rear fenders from my 58 3100, i am considering using black oxide stainless fasteners to reinstall. No paint, just a black oxide finish. Has anyone else used this finish for hardware on exposed areas?

I think that all the original stuff, except maybe fasteners for some mechanical parts on the driveline were cad plated. Zinc plating is the current substitute for cadmium.
I have not used black oxide on anything exposed.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

It depends on how well the black oxide finish adheres to the stainless.
