    I like that clean look. But I also like to replace the factory bolts with stainless as well. Coin flip either way I guess.

    I actually like the lid panels without the integrated bolts. These separate bolts have real 1/4-20 threads and one can use real stainless nuts. The integrated bolts only work with these thread cutting nuts and I have not found yet any SS version. But I guess I am picky. lol.

    I like the integrated bolts except if you are going for originality in an older style Genesis. I had not really noticed that difference for a long time, but when I did my Skyline I was looking through my "Weber graveyard" and saw that I had a set like that. Since that grill was all custom mix-and-match, I decided I liked the cleaner look.

    I am content to use the regular ones for older style grills. I personally would rather use the stock flat head bolts that you paint black (aiming for a clean look still!), but I have seen some of the pretty cool restores where some have used all stainless. Definitely will last longer although I haven't had too many rusted out since they get covered with grease.

    I have some of the clips that I got from ACE hardware. However, I have been using the high heat RTV. Simple and effective. But, my tube dried out to the point it won't come out of the tube any more, so I had to use the clips I had in stock. I am going to get another tube of RTV though.
