@jperry these screws look to be just dipped in white paint. Can you look for other suppliers that carry white screws listed above? Ideally something that will be scratch/scrape resistant if at all possible.

As far as using a driver on the screws it is possible to tighten the screw without scratching the paint. The issue occurs if you do not perfectly align the hex shape of the driver with the hex shape of screw. When slightly misaligned the driver will spin into place and scrape paint off as shown in the photo below. This could be tough to maintain in production and will add to assembly time, but not impossible.

I'm going to attempt to making a nylon driver to see if that is feasible.

Hardware Specialty is looking into some different options and are going to send some samples next week.
