Re: Roof Leak Repairs Round II - The Front Section

Thanks guys.
I will check the hardware store for the covers.
I think the liner idea is not in the budget for now.
Appreciate the help.

I think the 2 1/2 in or 3 in are fine. You can also ask Sportsmobile for new hardware.

I went ahead and ordered the 3 inch washers and some adhesive backed weather resistant butyl.
Thanks for the help all.

Sorry to fire this thread up again but looking for some quick tips...

I started to replace the rusted hardware on my penthouse the other day and managed to get one single one replaced and it was the rear most point where I could reach in the back door with a wrench and stop the bolt from spinning freely while I took the nut off the roof.

Is there a trick to hold the bolts inside while you are working on the roof or is this a 2 man job???

Thanks in advance!

I use a pair of vice grips to lock on to the top of the bolt. Then set a couple of bricks next to it to keep it from moving. Not elegant but it worked.
