Default Rollbar Tap Fluid

About to drill #36 and tap 6-32 the rear window holes into the rollbar. What tap fluid is safe or recommended for this process?

I used Boelube and went very slowly with the tap (by hand of course). I would only cut a turn or two then back it out and clean out the cuttings, add more lube and cut a couple more turns.

Make sure you use the revised plans for securing the small attach screws ( no thread locker as in revision 0).
