I’ve noticed the chrome seat trim on my Lightning has become loose. Does anyone have a clean sealant/glue they would recommend to help adhere this to the seat ?

Thanks.

That trim is supposed to be held on with screws. Take a look at the underside of the seat and see what's going on; I think the bits to reattach are available.

Screws than slide inside of the seat trim channel held on with nuts on the underside. Usually, they were long screws and after installation of the nuts, the excess screws ends, which would otherwise hit the frame, were then cut off with dikes or similar so the thread ends may be a bit buggered, but they usually keep the nuts from coming loose.

I bought large head stainless M4 screws, ground the head down so the head would slide into the back of the trim and there are holes on the base for the screws to go go through, large washer and M4 nyloc on the inside of the base.
