Yellow Bolt Marking Paint

Anyone know what the yellow marking paint MV use to mark all the nuts and bolts?

Is it a common boiler maker marker?

Looking at marking my bolts after tear downs to be able to give quick visual inspection of the torque on my bolts at track days. Dont want to use a permanent marker however as Id like to be able to wash it off after each rebuild.

Any other alternatives?

Any good hardware store will sell paint marking pens. Many colors available. The cheap pens are just as good as the expensive ones for home use, expensive ones just last longer (the tip that is to keep line neat).

Thumbs up ?

Mine were all marked with very thin white paint.......
Use typist correction fluid available at any stationary store
Or use a pointed felt pen like a Sharpie and make a dot that touches both surfaces
Way less obvious

Just as an aside...the paint markings from the factory are to signify that a particular fastener has been properly torqued. Not as a tell-tale that a fastener has moved.

As a QC measure, the worker who assembles the part marks the fasteners to show they were torqued to spec. It is a common fail-safe procedure to prevent any oversight that could compromise safety or reliability.
