I don't have a problem with crimping the threads on any permanently
installed bolts of stainless or carbon steel. Unbolting tensioned stainless
steel bolts is always a crap shoot anyway because of galling. Stainless
steel will often times self crimp. If re-use of stainless steel bolts is
foreseen, they should be designed, installed, and protected with special
