    Smile RXP intake grate installation help?

    what kind of thread lock and silicone do you guys use?? there seems to be many types out there like red or blue thread lock. will any waterproof silicone work? like black rtv stuff that you get at a auto store or the overpriced west marine and get the clear or white stuff?

    Does the front bolt need silicone around it? Mine had a bunch of it on the bolt and under the grate on the hull.

    I put silicone on the front grate mating surface as well as a little bit in the hole.

    Is the Permatex Right Stuff OK for the front of the intake grate surface where it meets the hull around the 13 mm bolt or should I use something else. Going out now to put my grate back on.

    Thanks.
