Need some Help!!
Ok I am not sure really what section to put this in, but i think the Equipment section is the best.
So, i am drawing up some rear signal and helmet lock mounts to relocate them, it'll be similar to asbrand's setup.
So i got the parts drawn up, but i need measurements for my hole and their sizes, so i go to remove my blinkers, i see there's one philips head screw so i remove that, it wasnt easy, i rounded it off some, so i gotta now replace those screws (what size/thread are these). Ok anyway, so i got that screw out, but the blinker still wont come off that chrome back piece, am i missing something, is there another screw behind, or is it just stuck in there and i gota wiggle and pull it out???? I dont wana break the darn thing.
Next, moving on to the helmet lock. Same darn problem, but worse, I completely rounded and screwed up those screws. They are on so darn TIGHT!!! Yes i was using the right size philips screwdriver bit, i even tried hammering it in there to get it to move. I am just getting nowhere with them. Now both helmet lock screws are fubared. I did get the left side one to back out a little bit, but still, its so freaking TIGHT! Did they use a buttload of locktight on these or what???
Any suggestions? Should i drill it out or what??
This is really frustrating!!
I know stuff has to be tight, but come on those screws rounded off so easy!!
