I'm using polished stainless steel bolts on my entire 53 Chevy pickup.It was brought up to me that I should put some kind of plastic washer behind the bolts to avoid chipping the paint? It seems that this would cause the bolts to work loose? What is the best way to handle this. It will be show paint but I'm going to drive the wheels off of it.

I'm rebuilding an XKE Jaguar - the (painted) front frame is held together with lots of bolts. I got some stainless bolts with a slight shoulder under the head, a bit like a thin washer but smaller than the diameter of the head, so the 'points' on the head don't contact the paint. Jaguar never used washers under these bolts. I actually put the bolts in the lathe & took a bit off the back side of the 'points' to give a bit more clearance. These bolts are pretty standard but you won't notice the 'shoulder' unless you look for it.
