Ride plate jbweld vs silicon
As I ready the ski for the JP ride plate swap I had the pleasure of chipping out the JBWeld.
I did the string thing and duct tape around the bolt heads. An hour later my neck was killing (I have about 50% of C6-C7 left oh yeah the headache later will be lovely ) and the holes accessible I could help but wonder if I did it wrong.
My question is to those that use something other than JBweld; how offten do you have to refill your holes?
If I am filling the holes incorrectly any tips would be appreciated.

Guys, here is a trick to removing the JB weld from the bolt holes.....
heat it up with a hand held propane torch (available at any hardware store cheap)
Once it heats up you can pry it out of the holes with a screw driver like it was butter.
JB weld is the only thing i would use to fill in the ride plate holes.

or a heat gun works too... and when you hear it crack get a little screw driver and pry it out effortlessly

Dang, I can't believe you guys use JB weld on the holes. Torch to get it out???
This is the stiff I used on my GPR and now my RXP-X. I've probably been through 10 sticks of it and filled 100 holes. I would say 4 holes have come out because I didn't pack it in good enough. When it comes time to get it out just take a flat head scewdriver, tap into it and pop it out. I have only been able to find it at Home Depot. Lowes only sells the JB Weld stick stuff.

Around me the larger walmarts have a great election of jbweld products.

Gotta get the JB Weld, I used silicon at first and had to do it twice last year. JB weld on now with no issues
