Ok. I am curious what inserts and potting material everyone uses.

We pot holes into CFRP all the time on the 787, and even out best mechanics occasionally make colossal mistakes!! It can be a real headache.

Well that is worrisome. Can we ask them to do the holes for us?

No, but maybe one of them can do mine and I can post a how-to!! Geoff Steel should recommend the insert type and potting compound...

Any updates on when you might receive the roof @ariusen

Also is it possible for an admin to move this thread to the cosmetic section of the forum so it can be tracked down easier when the classifieds get busy?

Ask them. They make great roofs but don't always communicate. I would not have known my roof was done if I hadn't asked them. I also had to follow up a couple of times to get tracking information. Good thing I got the tracking info too, as the I was able to see the shipment is stuck in customs due to an "Description provided is insufficient to classify commodity." I think I fixed that by contacting FedEx stateside.

(Good thing I got it as well, as the I was able to see the shipment is stuck in customs due to an "Description provided is insufficient to classify commodity.") They've updated info for customs but status is unchanged. Now I'm continuing to follow up on that.
