When it comes to bolts, I would use new STAINLESS STEEL bolts wherever applicable/accessible if I'm doing a body-off resto! Desi bolts of any kind are not known to last long enough so better replace them when you can access the car's 'private parts'!

Please make sure they meet the strength requirements also! Stainless steel refers to steel with chromium (>10%) as an alloying agent, however several types of stainless steel result from presence of other alloying agents. Select right grade based on the requirement (degree of corrosion resistance needed, degree of non magnetism, application (shear loads / tensile loads, temperature) and so on. Depending on microstructure we have austenitic stainless steel, martensitic stainless steel etc. Each one has a different property.
