    What is a good material to fill the rideplate holes??

    I was just wondering what would be good? I would want to use something that is easy to get out if needed.

    Bondo-Glass works great, but im sure there is something better out there.

    Jam a piece of rope around the bolt head then put the filler on top. That way if you do need to take the filler out you just pull the rope out and your bolt heads are clean.

    An un-named crazy Columbian guy says to use a product called Magnum Steel available at O'Reilly's Auto Parts.

    Yea, Magnum Steel is probably better.
    It won't be hard to get out when you need to. Realistically, you will probably never have to remove your rideplate, but in the event you do heat the filler up with a torch and then get out your chisel and hammer. It will come right out.

    A high quality marine grade silicone will work fine.
