    JB Weld and rideplate holes

    Guys,
    When filling rideplate holes with JB Weld make sure you get most of it in the holes and not on the rideplate.
    I was sloppy doing it last night so I have been out sanding for the last hour. My arms are killing me.

    I was using my Dewalt palm sander. I just didn't have agressive enough paper.

    Damn I had 80 grit and it wiped JB waterweld off the plate like Roseanne wipes out a large pizza. I'm gonna be filling mine as soon as I am sure I have my plate buttoned down and sealed in all the right places.

    I just cut out a small piece of sand paper and did it by hand.

    4" angle grinder with a flapper wheel does it quick and leaves it smooth.

    I picked up some 60 grit today and things are going much better.
    I should have just waited.
