Question. While checking attachment points for snugness (axles, bars), I noticed paint swabbed across the nut and bolt. Is this done to detect movement of the connection points? If so, if the marks are intact, I guess the pieces aren't loosening. Right?
Thanks, Huico

Often times, when a nut/bolt is tightened to the
proper torque, a dab of paint will provide a
reference point, to know that this item was
finished correctly, & to also be able to recognize
when something has began to come loose.

I think the factory puts those on there as part of their quality control. When the part is torqued they put a dab of paint on them to indicate it was done. The inspector then just looks to see if the paint spots are there. Not sure if I would trust them to ensure torque has not changed.
