    sealant for intake grate

    I just got my rxp back from the warranty repairs (sc washers went bad), and while i'm waiting for the green charger to come in so I can send my sc to jerry (not running it till those crappy washers out) I was wondering what sealant should I use for my intake grate? If you use the skeggs would you still need to fill in the ride plate holes?

    Yes, fill the holes. Use permatex RIGHT STUFF for the grate.

    Get some Rtv ultra black lot cheaper.
    or at LEAST some kind of marine grade silicone.

    Anything else I have used takes forever to cure and portions still get pulled out. Use the Right Stuff. It cures quick and bonds extremely well.
