Loose screws in portlight stainless trem

Duane Siegfri

I have a few loose screws in the stainless steel trim for the portlights.  I need to add something to make the screws tight.  These are very short wood screws (only two or three threads).

Most of the articles discuss filling the hole with epoxy, then redrilling a pilot hole.  I'm loath to do that since it would likely glue the stainless to the fiberglass.

I'm thinking of using something like 3M 5200 that sets up fairly hard and then run the screw into that.

Any thoughts or experiences out there?
