  • measure the size of the fcs plug. Find a holesaw bit for your your drill and drill out the plug. If the plug isnt broken soak it in acetone to get all the resin and q-cell off of it. sand the inside of where the plug is going to go and put the plug in place with a fin in it to keep it straight.supposedly you can from there just squirt a q-cell resin mixture around it once its in place. Might be better off filling the void a 1/4 of the way and sinking the plug to make sure u have a good bond. Should be too bad at all.

  • I wouldn't soak your plug in Acetone.  Use 60 grit sand paper to get the old Filler and such off of it. Acetone isn't going to remove cured resin.   
    Foamies are the new black

  • Get a new plug. 5 bucks in any surf shop.  Y?  Cause its is longer. It also has clips on the top to help in positioning correctly.* AND adhesive foam to surround it as it was originally.  Just make sure to get the right plug. Left, right or center.

    *you will need to sand it down. But thats a good thing.
