Yeah, same stuff under the bolts.

My favorite uses are stanchion bases and running lights. Consider something else (3M 4200?) where adhesive is needed.
I'll have to look for some, good idea for running lights.

slight thread drift ... I used 3M 4000 to bed my stanchions ... less permanent than 4200 or 5200 and with more UV protection ... I let it set up for a day snugged just slightly, to form a gasket, then tightened it up 24-48 hrs. later.
