Better to paint the screws than screw the paints.
They are known in California to contain chemicals that cause birth defects.

I think it looks more factory, if I leave them unpainted. Besides, I paint the legs with them disassembled and off the the figure. Painting is usually finished, by the time I'm even thinking about the screws.
I do find it odd that my gray Snake Eyes came with black screws, while my black Snake Eyes came with silver screws.

I'm so hit or miss with the screws. I've gone from not painting, to painting, and even filling/painting. I guess it depends on exactly what I'm doing to the fig, or how I'm doing it.
Filling and painting has recently made it to the top of my list though.

Yes. I paint them. I've thought about filling them in and painting them too, but so far haven't tried that yet.

I always paint them.. I don't make customs that look like hasbro pieces, so I don't care about them looking factory. I started filling the screw holes too and even filled over some peg holes too on some customs...
Here's my fav example:
no peg hole and no screw holes.
