Re: Prepping to re-bed stanchions.
Have a few spare bolts, nuts and washers (or replace them all) I had a couple that siezed or were badly corroded.QUOTE]
Why go to the length of removing stanchion bases, or other hardware, and not replace all fasteners at the same time? Potentially corroded or stressed fasteners are a weak point in the re-install.
