console fixing

I'm building a new console for my searider 5.4 could someone give me advice on the method of fixing/sealing to the deck. The flange is going to be on the inside. Would I use s/s self tappers and what to use to seal holes and base.

You can use two methods.

Self tappers and polyurathane sealant, which will give you a strong and sealed yet removable in the future fixing.

Or self tappers and resin, which will give you the same only a lot harder to remove should you ever decide to change or move its position inthe future.

I used the first method on my old RIB for both the console, seat and bottle rack and never had any problems.

See my other thread about removing sikaflex!

Self tappers at about 8" spacing and the flange set down on Sikaflex will provide a very secure fixing. A bit tricky to remove though.
