The total thickness of the two pieces of plastic is maybe 1/8" so aluminum pop rivets likely are the best option. Thanks for the suggestion.

Black Permatex

I can attest to the black Permatex sealant getting everywhere and refusing efforts to remove it. We used that sealant in the engineroom of my first ship, the USS Bagley, FF-1069. We used that goo on the lube oil systems to seal and prevent leaks and the only thing we found to cut that stuff was the JP-5 fuel (jet fuel) we had for our helicopter. Forget rubber / vinyl gloves, they weren't available to us engineers in 1985.


My sympathies, sir and good luck with it staying put.

As long as they stay attached, we have a winner!

The water stream is about 8" to 10" behind the side mirrors so it's not even close.

A note on applying silicone adhesives.


Use a wet finger. Keep a small plastic cup with you and dip your finger as you smooth the silicone. Water allows your finger to slide over the silicone, not stick, and it does NOT affect the performance of the cured silicone. Silicone uses water/moister to cure.


Now, you don't want to entrap water in the silicone so don't go overboard.

Thanks, I did not know that.

I did find a second use for that messy black Permatex. The caulking that is used where the black paint is present is just painted black and the paint is flaking off in many places. I smeared some of the black Permatex using a gloved finger along the caulk line and so far it's staying on.

That size tube I linked to was enough to install all four gutter spouts with a very small amount left over so I think I'll buy a second tube for caulk covering.
