I have found that locktight is a oneway trip on plastic, it goes in once and destroys the plastic if you ever have to remove the srew, is there a particular type of locktight for plastic? I currently only have MIP Thread Lock in a little white tube??? and I'm sure its only for the metal parts?

just put the loctite on the nut and then thread it on the screw.

You are correct. loctite will break down the plastic. Use shoe-goo or silicone(RTV).

for plastic areas with some material left in then I usually shave off a little bit of plastic from a hot glue stick and stick it in the hole, that works most of the time. I make a peice like a toothpick, and put it through, then tighten the screw ever so lightly, it holds the screw in every time, unless I hit a curb , then its usually time for a new component .
