Screws on bottom case coming loose
#8
Loctite 243 will certainly work. I wouldn't put it in the hole though, I would use a toothpick to dab it on to the screw threads.

Before assembling though, I would use a new screw to check the threads on all the holes (without putting the cover on). That way if there's something else wrong, you'll find out first.

When applying threadlocker, put all the screws in and make sure the cover is tight and in the right places. This is hard to do with that cover, it's a tight fit. You might have to lightly bend the case when it's all assembled to get the corners to seat. Then, take the screws out one at a time and apply the Loctite.

Be sure not to over-tighten the screws. This may be obvious but I think it is worth mentioning because it would be so easy to over-tighten them.
