    Just as the title asks what kind of adhesive/ sealer do I use for the intake grate? The factory stuff looks like clear silacone but I could be wrong, please help.

    Use a marine grade clear silicone, do not use the clear GE Silicone II or you'll be sorry if it does not cure right...

    or 3m 4200 quick dry. The JR stuff you should be able to get at local shop and works great. 4200 is if you plan on removing it again...it comes off a little easier.

    I just removed the 2&4 bars on my intake grate. I used the 3M 4200 quickdry in white (couldn't find clear). I just used some paint thinner to cleanup around the area as. Worked well......
