went to reinstall my s c today seems my first few threads are crossed in the two lower holes any advise? it's great putting stainless bolts into aluminum threads in a bullshit position assholes.

Damn dude, you better chase the holes with the correct tap before proceeding.

If too far gone use some JB weld or Devcon Titanium putty then re drill and tap,

Get thread chaser not a tap, sears sells a thread repair kit metric

Hate to say it,but you cant blame BRP for cross threading your bolts.......LOL..Ive taken many Scers out numerous times and never have had a problem....Sounds like you better get a different socket wrench...one that doesnt cross thread your bolts......lol

another reason why turbo is better dont have to worry about this lol!!!
hey anyway i have always put just the smallest amount of antisieze on these bolts. never had one come loose and it really helps with removal and instalation especially on that top one.
