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.

Welcome to Greenhulk.
Use JB water weld.

It is a two part putty, it does look similar.

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.

Welcome to the forum. I use bondo. Cover the bolt heads with duct tape

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.
