Default Aero mounting.

How do you guys mount aero's to your boxes? Obviously screws, but I am a bit weary of over-tightening and cracking something, or having it too loose. How do you guys do it? I've never used an aero before.

Mine is partially external so I didn't mount with anything but silicone and gorilla tape for the time being...Seems to hold up pretty damn well so far!

Yep, yep. Silicone and duct tape. Aeros really don't take the beating that you might think.

Unless you just want it flush, then you should use some screws. The flange isn't as rigid as you may think. Put some weatherstrip underneath the mounting flare flange for a gasket. That will help with overtightening.

Use the right screws and you won't ever crack them.

hand tighten the screws, ull know when to stop before cracking, then put a lil ca glue overlapping the screw head n spray activator n the screws wont come loose, n later when u want to take the screws out, use a flat head on the ca glue n light tap with a hammer

Something like this pan head screw that is flat on the bottom of the head



Rather than a tapered screw head like this

Any type of plastic you NEVER want to use a screw/bolt that has a tapered head, such has a flat head (drywall screw) thats made to be countersunk. You want to use a head that is flat on it's bottom. To flush these you use a couterbore. When you use one that is tapered, you create a sheering/wedge effect when tightening down the screw/bolt and you introduce lots of stress into the hole. Heads with flat bottoms don't introduce this stress, instead they put all pressure downward, instead of down and out. Plastics don't like high stress point areas like screw holes or 90 degree inside corners. Making inside corners with plastic you want a radius, this helps with stresses and saves cracking.

You can murder the flange with those too, man. Lol.

Just don't overtighten the damn thing.
