Fairing Pockets Screw Holders
Hi Everyone;

Can some one give me ideas on how to repair the screw holders on the fairing that the pockets are screwed down to. Some of mine are loose and will not hold the screw tight any more. they are plastic, and is there any way to fill and re-tap?

Thanks, John

They are not tapped holes. They used sheet metal type screws. Go to the next size larger screw. If that doesn't work, use some tinnerman nuts.
