Anyone ever install the brass threaded inserts into the seat cowl? I bought a new cowl because my old one was scratched. I now am going to install it and the inserts are too tight to fit. The only way I see that it will work is to drill out the holes a tiny bit and them glue them in. I know it sounds like a small problem but just checking before I screw something up.

Never done it on a cowl, but it sounds like you're on the right track. Don't use too much glue.

Had a similar prob, stuck the insert in the freezer for an hour- contracted enough to fit, didn't need glue. Just keep lock-tite away from most all plastics- the vapors will dissolve it. good luck.
