Tyflon Tape and Studs

Post by vito » Sep 15th, 2011 1:12 am

Before I forget. I was talking with my old auto shop teacher about mounting the bumpers. From what he is hearing is that folks are now using tyflon tape on the bolt threads. This helps with removing them 20 years from now. Also recommends that we treat the back sides of the bumpers. This is because we normally don't wash that area and it helps with rust prevention.

Before I put my seats back in the car, I used studs instead of bolts to hold the seats in place. This is beause you won't have to worry about getting them out again. Just unscrew the nuts from inside.

Anyway good luck on all of the projects out there.
