Dont over apply!! first 4 threads and tighten.

what is the best way to apply it to the threads?

Touch the applicator to the target section of threads and squeeze out one drop. Rotate the screw around in your hand to get an even application of sealant, and install. Wipe off any excess.

I think its a good question. Its one of those things that seems obvious and is actually super easy to do, but if done improperly can really mess up your expensive toy.

lol. and im sure im not the only one that had this question.

Make sure to leave it alone for a while once you apply it. It needs about 30 minutes to "set" and a day or so to "cure".

If you mess with it after it's set the bond won't be nearly as strong.

thanks for the info.

The only stupid question is "How much does it cost to repair these."

Thanks for the help guys.
