    It looks similar to the stuff used in this sticky.

    I'd just be skeered I couldn't get it out if I needed to pull the rideplate off.

    Cut you some small peices of twine (I use lawn mower pull cord), pack it in around the bolt heads and then use JB-Stick. You can pack the JB in with your fingers, then wet the tips of your fingers to keep it from sticking to you while you smooth it out by tamping on with your fingers. The twine will give on the back side if you ever need to pull it out. Been using this method for years and it has never poped out!!! Take your time getting each hole perfect and you wont need to sand. You got about 3-5 minutes of working time before it starts to harden.

    Not many times do you need to remove the ride plate, but if you use rope it's no problem getting them out. And trust me, it will give you a mph or so.... seen how big those holes are?

    I stick rope on a wad of tin foil (to keep the rope in place) then do exactly as dnielsen said. Takes 15 minutes.

    Filling rideplate holes

    OK. I got the proxy putty in the sticky. So when I'm under the ski, I stick a piece of duck tape on the bolt (so both sides of the duct tape are sticky) then put some Nylon rope (not twine?) in a little circle around the bolt then put the putty in there. Should I smash the putting hard in there? How does aluminum foil work? Are we just trying to fill some space with something soft so it comes out easier?

    You are correct, just push the twine in and around the bolt heads (it will stay put while your mixing the JB). No foil or tape needed when doing this method, and yes the intent is to give a crush/cushion under the JB so if you need to remove the plate it is easy to do. I have removed mine atleast 5 times with no problem. I'm sure these other guy's methods will work well to!

    Oh, and yes, mash the putty in hard before smoothing out. Try to get all the air out from behind the putty.

    Not sure about the epoxy but the JB works well. You can get the JB at any autoparts dealer. 1 tube will be plenty, usually enough in one package to do atleast two ride plates.
