Default Re: T-Top floor mount repair advice requested

Make your own toggles out of nylock nuts and strips of steel or aluminum. They will be much stronger. You can marine tex the nuts onto the strips to hold them in place. Once you tighten them down the strips will act as a washer distributing the force. You may have to under-cut the floor with a bent nail in a hand drill so the force is flush with the underside of the floor. I did something like this on an Edgewater. We were also able to atach nuts with fender washers to a length of straightened wire coat hanger to move it into position from inside the console and were a fuel vent line ran. Look for any type of access such as for your fuel sender and invent a way to get ot the position you want. If it is done right you will only need to do it once.
