Default RE: *Using Rubber O-Rings On Cowling*

I punched out some small circles from a punctured inner tube. Then punched a small hole in the middle of each. Put your hold down screw through the cowl and then through one of the rubber circles. If the screw hole in the rubber is tight on the screw the rubber will stay with the screw when it's unscrewed and it holds the screw in the cowl and that helps you keep up with them and has them ready to go when you replace the cowl.

You can also use two rubber circles per cowl hole, one inside the cowl and one outside.

A small set of punches isn't too expensive and you'd be surprised how often you use them around the house much less with this hobby.
