Thanks Dan ....you clearly have a clue. As I think I said earlier, if they had corrosion, I'd swap em out. I'm in Calif, so after 11 years, mine are still bright

True, "embedded" would have been a better choice of word, but I was thinking more of material properties. The cross brace is likely 3003 alloy(maybe 1100) so also a waste of a Torque to yield bolt on such soft material

You also have have more patience than I, in explaining to meatheads that they are "clearly" not as brilliant as their egos think they are. This is one reason the internet is so dangerous. Morons will read one page on...oh say Psychology and suddenly they are experts, walking around seeing Passive/Aggressive behavior in everyone(or whatever it is they just read about)
