Upon recite of my ACURITE rain gauge I immediately replaced the mounting screws with stainless steel because the water discharge is directly across the screws.  The screws will rust out with in less than a year.  In Hawaii the screws will rust out in less than 6 months.  Painting the top or the screw or around it will only delay the rusting because water will get in under the base and still rust the screw
