Awesome and thanks for the flexibility and info from E.

The wing bolts of my 7A was pain in the rear but it has much less room to deal with.

Thank you. I hadn't considered that. I investigated your suggestion and found this EAA video that offers the same advice:

I put torque seal on the threads, the nut and the structure. Maybe that's just overkill.

Edit: After reviewing the video, I will not be putting torque seal on the nuts.

Pet peeve: "Lose" is the opposite of "find". "Loose" means "not tight".

Check the EAA video above. It's only 2 minutes. The presenter shared that when the seal is on the threads, removing the nut can cause the threads to "roll" (I think he means "strip"), requiring cutting of bolt for removal.
