Here is what I used. All stainless steel button-head bolts, neoprene washers, inside and out, and locking nuts with the locking device going around the entire inside of the nut.
By the time the two dissimilar metals get their battle fully engaged, I'll be pushin up daisies.
I had to place the nuts outside because the trim rings inside would not seat with all that hardware. They fit fine with the button head and washer inside. I also took this window out and used the black butyl strip caulk. They are also waterproof. We have had torrential rains here to the point that we are close to breaking records for rainfall this month. If was going to leak, it would have by now.
