Masking up both the console and the deck helps to minimise the migration of Sika to places you wouldn't have thought possible.


Could drill about 8 holes through the flange, mark drill points in the deck, then take off console and countersink in an M12 stainless nut secured with epoxy (only deep enough to fit the nut flush, then I could fit in something like the below. The console could then slot over the top of those short guiding rods. What you think? Perhaps over complicating but itís an idea ...

I think you may be over complicating it.

The two main requirements are to help you position the console and to prevent the console from sliding before the Sika has gone off. The guides are a good idea but I'd still go the couple of screws route.

I actually put screws all the way round mine but I like the industrial look and the console is aluminium. I can't show you too much as it will spoil the big reveal once I've got the f%^king thing working and I'm not 700 miles away from it!

Look forward to the big reveal! Looks good!

Mine has an internal flange so a bit tricky to do any other way of using a guide. Can just with two people and a marked out position drop it on top onto the chosen location

you could make a wood frame up screw in position where your glass is going drop the console in and remove the frame

Iím leaning towards just drawing out with a marker where the console should sit, placing Zealand on the floor in a band around where the flange will drop onto then with two people carefully lowering into position very slowly
