The hardware is black oxided steel. The insulation getting damp doesn't make much sense but it still hits, especially with proper hood fitment. It can wear into the hood too.

Yeah the insulation touching engine parts is normal. But you answered my question by saying they are steel mounts.

Surprised at that.

Hardware ≠ mounts. Hardware is nuts and bolts. Same as the Motorsports bar.

Ah yes, didn't catch that.

Guess we'll see. I have no corroded hardware and coating on the capnuts is still good.
Though I bougth these new as the set I got with the bar, had worn coating and some surface rust.
