    Filling ride plate holes??

    Been reading and buying parts n the forums for a while, this is my first post. I was wondering what everyone is using to fill in their ride plate holes? I see everyone has them filled as a free mod, but never talk about doing it. I am guessing a rtv or some sealant. Thanks in advance.

    I use the same stuff as shown on the first post in the "How to" section, I pick it up at Lowe's.

    I used black silicone to glue nickels to the screw heads, then plumbers putty (comes in a 1" tube from Lowe's or Home Depot) to fill in the holes. A flat file run across the putty until it is just a little high, finish up with emory cloth wrapped around a sanding block. You can also use a piece of rope and some duct tape like shown in the thread insted of the nickels, I just thought for 30 cents it was easier to use my spare change.

    I'm sure that works and looks good at first but that bondo absorbs moisture and will eventually fall out and is pretty brittle.

    I just put isolated wire around the bolts, fill rideplate holes with waterweld. Let it set up for a few minutes and take a new razor blade and cut the excess off. Pretty much done at that point. You can knock the plugs out with a hammer and chisel later, if you have to.
