Green loctite on the threaded part and a little around the nipple. 3m 5200 really sticks to the surface more than you might think. No dots over the nipple. I did tighten all the spokes before the procedure. I had one minor leak that I had to go back in and reseal and the 3m tape allowed that leak. Thats why I feel the 5200 is what is doing the sealing not the tape. Will 4412 help keep things in place,I guess.
