fixnflyguy, would I still be able to remove them if I use the red loctite?
Probably not. If you want to remove them, use BLUE loctite.
You might as well go ahead and replace the nutplates and quit wasting time with other temporary fixes. It's an easy job.
Tinnerman washers go on the *outside*, under the screw head, btw. We're not talking about Tinnerman *nuts* in this context.
