Jump Seat wheel arch bolts

I'm installing my jump seats for the first time... couple of questions:

- what do folks use to protect the the mounting bolts that protrude into the wheel arch? seem like a prime candidate for rusting shut and never being opened again. cake them in grease?

- any tips for holding the damn bolt head tight above while you fasten the nut from inside the wheel arch? or is it normally a two-person job? my "socket spanner duct-taped down" technique seemed a little amateur - there must be a better way...

Mine didn't have any rust. there's good draining there. I had to use vice grips in side, but you can actually hold both ends with the window open on most of them. 2 persons make it much easier.

I put rivnuts in for all those bolts. life changing experience....period. nows the time if ever to do it.

Me too, with a Zinc washer and Neoprene washer (on the outside), lock washer and nut on the inside.
I installed them with the bolts facing up and had wifey tighten them from inside the cab which I held with a spanner below.

I used 5/16 bolts (1/2" heads) by ~2.5" long.

I can post a pic from below if you'd like too.

good luck.
