Cam - I am rebedding all hardware in the next couple weeks. Re: your advice of not tightening until cured - Is that necessary when you bevel out all of the boltholes, to hold more sealant - forming an O-ring?

Jeff - Similar question - If you bevel out the bolt holes, do you feel it is still necessary to add rubber washers, to increase the amount of sealant?

Thanks in advance!!

I have read many posts, as well as Don Casey's advice, on the subject, but was leaning to Halekai 's method of bevelling - and tightening all at once!
