    What to Use??

    Installing a R&D Intake grate on my X tomorrow and also filling in the holes.


    What is the best thing to use? Bondo? J B Weld water? Looking for some input from you guys experiences.


    Also what MPH gain should I expect?

    Thanks

    I got if off a thread on here and it worked well. Take some 1/4" rope and wrap around the bolt head. Duck tape over the hole and cut along edge, push the cut tape against bolt head and rope, fill with JB Stick weld. This way makes it easy to take out if you need to. Use a little water to help smooth JB weld flush with plate, you can also sand it.

    I just pack the recess with epoxy metal. Just remeber to clean the recess with solvent to get any nasties out first.

    Easy to get out as well. Terminal driver, tap it into the epoxy, and pick it out.

    I've had to remove/fill mine 4-5 times, the JB waterweld has held up better for me than anything else I used. And Wally World sells this for like $4
