Do I just take a solder gun and melt the plastic pins on the back?

what about when I put them back on?

basically i plan on fiberglassing cloth inserts, then putting them back on....

When we did mine, we just drilled the plastic things out and then I think we used headlight sealent to put them back in. If you want to try I think Top Shop uses something to allow them to be screwed in (I think metal clips or something).

you can also use self tapping screws as well....lords fusor....or contact top shop and ask for pics of their set up.....basically a bolt fused to the panel that goes through the hole you just drilled out then put on a washer and a nut to tighten it down.

Just get a strong adhesive for the bolt to the inserts...lords fusor will work wonders for ya.

i was going to do the same thing puck ... remove my inserts and fiberglass em ... i was thinking close to what they're saying but a lil differen.t
I was going to try to find small bolts with an almost flat top. Someones gotta make em. I'd drill them through prior to glasssing, and then glass over them so i know they're def. in. Then yes, i'd use a nut and washer and tighten it up. But that adhesive from behind sounds like a really good idea as well. That way there is no chance in breaking the glass if u tighten too much or having to worry about getting it smooth. =) i'd say def. go with the bolt idea ... let me know how it works for you.

Pierre... you're a dumb a$$! You were just at my house yesterday and didn't even bother to ask me!! You know I did mine.

Yeah, just drill the plastic welds. I used a nice forstner bit set for a perfect circle drilling. When putting them back together, I globbed Automotive Goop on the weld spots and let it dry overnight... BAM! Strong as nails.
