What brand Loctite to use?
Just curious what brand loctite everyone is using. I put red Permatex on my iBR bolts a couple days ago, and had to remove the iBR last night. Bolts didn't take any extra force at all. That Permatex stuff is crap.

I always use the loctite brand stuff, only cause I have a bunch of it on hand. I like using the "sticks" they sell. It may just be my experience, but I find it holds better than the liquid.

red is for bigger bolts and you must use heat to remove it
blue is for smaller bolts/nuts

243 blue on stainless has 1/2 the holding strength as steel
and blue 242 has 1/3 the strength on stainless vs mild steel

Where do you guys buy the 232 and 242? All I see at Autozone is Permatex.
