Filling Old Hatch or Window Mounting Holes

Postby BlowingOldBoots » Thu Apr 05, 2012 8:13 am

If you are replacing hatches or windows with a new model that has different bolt hole centres, do the next owner a favour and fill the old mounting holes with Epoxy, not mastic. It dries out and shrinks over time resulting in leaks from the old holes into the lining.
