Help!
Wing bolt holes lineup question.

Viper Q 500 making the change from stock wing bolts to 1/4-20 nylon. Problem is how to drill the holes out keeping the same angle to the saddle threads ? It seems mine is a little off line and the bolt binds up because its not going in straight. Was going to drill all the way through wing an saddle at the same time. I just wanted hear how some others do it.

After I have popped out the metric blind nuts, I have found that no drilling is required - I simply run a 1/4x20 tap through the existing holes (with the wing on) and then hit the threads with CA. I did have to add plywood underneath on a few to add more threads.

Got it all taken care of. Not sure why I started this thread. Common sense would have told me to tap the holes one at a time like mentioned in a 2005 thread. Thanks Kbo and Barry. Duh

RE-tap a second time after the thin CA has cured. It will make the bolts go in and out easier but still hold well.

It's a night and day difference from what it was. I have 1/4-20 nylon in the front and going to leave the back alone but using nylon 8/32 bolts instead of the metal stock ones. If y'all really think its needed, I'll do the back 1/4-20 too.

Dale,

Your set up is the same as what Bruce Dechastel (www.bigbruceracing) does with his composite Q500 Shotguns and Slingshots, and he probably knows what he is doing by now.

Thank you Zarth. That definitely is a sign of reassurance.
