Yep! I did get malaria 2 x, but cured quickly as opposed to life-long issues that may have been related to long-term use of the toxins.

At some campgrounds I worried about our Scamp's gel coat from the clouds of Deet and bug spray wafting around in huge clouds that were sprayed by city folks who area apparently scared poopless something might bite them and OH MY I am outside and uncomfortable

Sorry off original Loctite Blue topic.

Bruce could you provide the study information that DEET is bad. I'd like to know who did the study, their methodology, and how they came to the results you're reporting.
Thanks.

I cant seem to find this post but thought I would mention that I know someone who has chronic Lynne disease and let me tell you, I would risk the effects of deet to keep the ticks off me any day of the week, esp. since I understand deet to be proven pretty safe.

Not a myth when it comes to plastic, I don't know about health stuff.

The one thing that can be said for Deet and not for the so called
" NATURAL " alternatives is that it works . My son has suffered with the effects of lymes 's disease for many years , which is far more harmful than the occasional use of Deet. IMHO. If you believe the Internet , everything we , use ,eat ,drink , breathe , smell is toxic.

There are indications that lack of Deet use can be linked to feelings of paranoia...

Thanks, Raz, for posting the ill effects of Loctite and the plastic knobs. Now, if I can just remember this!

Loctite and ABS

I had a similar experience in 1998 on a Honda Goldwing. I had rode Harleys and always used Loctite on accessories so......it was a "no brainer" to use it.

Well to my surprise everything I attached to the body parts (ie lighted spoilers, upper and lower bag spoilers, inside trunk separators, etc) all cracked and cost thousands in painted replacement parts.

I was a chapter director and published an article in GWRRA.

Lesson learned.

My brother got Lyme disease (it is named after the town of Lyme, Connecticut, by the way, but it is world wide) many, many years ago. It led to his early retirement on disability and he has lived with its debilitating effects for decades. Not fun!
So, folks, check for ticks daily if you are bushwhacking. Supposedly they have to be attached 24 hours in order to transmit Lyme. Pull them and kill'em.

I have successfully used sugar water in place of locktite on plastic.

I use teflon plumbers tape or you can fiberglass's nemesis, silicone to resist screws from turning loose.

Hairspray will also give you some thread adhesion but like sugar water isn't water resistant.

I've seen clear nail polish recommended as a light duty threadlocker, but that was for metal hardware on a holster. I don't know what its chemical composition is, though.
We joke that tractor manufacturers must use saltwater as a lubricant on dissimilar metals- maybe that would work!
Of course there's always good ol' Alabama loctite: crossthread it.
