Hi Bob, thanks for the input. I thought about doing what you just stated. Is it possible you could send some pictures?

Hi Mark,
Here you go - all very simple really. I chose stainless steal inserts because when it first happened, I tighten the M4 bolts but this only caused the lower bolt to strip in the air hence my second occurrence. I guess regular inserts would work but having seen the T nut strip I thought it worth getting some extra protection. Should also have mention that in addition to thread locker I also use spring washers and 'cowl bolts' are now on my preflight checklist!
Let me know if you need more.
Bob
