    Take a torch and heat the jb weld in the ride plate holes comes out like butter once you heat it do not melt it just heat it a little and hit with a chisel.

    If you put rope around the bolt heads before filling the holes they will pop out alot easier. I ussualy just carefuly use a razor blade to remove the old sealant and right stuff to re-install the plate.
    Also, to install the x plate on your ski you will just need to cut the 2 bosses that the grate bolts to off the pump shoe. Now those 2 bolts will go directly into the ride plate. You will also need to do some grinding on the grate to get it to sit flush with the plate. Also, I ussualy use some 2 part epoxy to fill in the voids in the pump shoe to make it stronger.

    Here's a pic of a x plate on top of a standard plate.
