So after this drilling and tapping the original thread was replaced with a stud so you could attach with a nut? How come you don't just install a bolt? Would seem easier and no different that what you have. I don't see any advantage to the stud? What am I missing?

It does look great, just wonder about the use of stud.

The stud was loctited into the new threads, and this way ... is much better for future removing. I think !!

A nut is easier to remove than a stud because of fewer threads. I wouldn't trust a bolt that only engages 5 threads but a nut is designed to hold that way.
Also, if the bolt seizes in the hole he just get's to do it again.

For some reason, it only took me two hours to put it back which was included a bathroom run, some ice cream, and few texting (damn ... do people ever call each other those days?)

































So .... What would you do if you were me now??
