Gotta bit of a problem here.
I decided to install 3 ft of t-track on the coachroof of my little sailboat so that I could have more options with the jib
sheeting. After drilling the holes and installing 1/4" bolts, fender
waqshers, and nut, I realized the interior
has a molded-in headliner
. I thought I was bolting to the underside of the roof, but there's about a 1/8" airspace between the two. When I tried to tighten down the nut the headliner
The only options I can see are:
1. Use a hole saw to enlarge the holes in the headliner so that I can bring the washers and nuts up to the underside of the roof, or
2. Cut and finish a wide strip of teak
or mahogany to act as a backing plate. But then there's still that empty space.
3. Rip'em out, and fill the holes with very thick epoxy
(so it doesn't just drip down on to the underside of the headliner), sell the d@#& project
boat, and save up for 3 years to get one is less of a project
Any suggestions, short of kerosine and a match?
