I hope I am posting this to the right group.
I have a sump guard under my car which protects it but the screws that hold
it had corroded so I drilled them out and want to replace with nuts and
bolts washers. As the underside of the car comes into contact with alot of
wetness what kind of nut\\bolt washer would be recommended ?
I went into B&Q and saw zine and galvanized nuts/bolts/washers but couldn't
get anyone to speak to me to see if they were a suitable product for me.
Be glad of some advise.

As someone else has said cad plate or preferably stainless steel.
Whatever you use I'd advise a grease coat when putting them on. If
you can get hold of it use silicone grease. Bit more expensive but
from experience it does a better job long term of protecting against
seizure of screw threads.

I have a tube of dow corning MS4. Use it as a thermal paste normally
but I found out years ago it would stand up to just about anything
including use on exhaust fittings.
Just checked Dow Corning and it is sold as DC4 silicone grease now.
Shows how long it is since I bought any.
