repairs to upper zip dee awning hold down mount.
So the rear hold down mount for the curb site awning on my 2005 classic has been showing some signs needing some love.
It has been getting harder to get the upper clamp down part and the roller head to be in correct position. I have to push the arm in towards the shell to get the hold down part in place to tighten the round part.
So i tried to tighten up the screws (3) and found out 2 of the three will not tighten so they are stripped. I took the clamp assembly off and the metal behind was ugly..
The top clamp had three screws in it and there appears to be another place to drill through for new screw.
I was going to clean the old mess up, drill out for 4th hole, put some SikaFlex 221 on back of clamp, put the screws back and put in new screw, seal around the edge of clamp with 221, let dry for 24 or more hrs before using.
has anyone done this as well?? how did you do it, what did you use and how is it holding up??
