I agree that stainless is the way to go. Look for a 6d, maybe an 8d stainless siding nail. they sell them at most home centers. Small head, ring-shanked.
Hot-dipped would be my next choice...but I wouldn't choose anything but stainless.
If you can't find then locally, reply back and I'll hunt down a mail order source for you.
