I will be removing the Jjb track and re-bedding on my 24, so this was great. A question on the exisitng holes:
Water has been coming through the holes (hence to need to re-bed). What is the prefered method of preping the holes? I've seen other threads about wetting them down with epoxy, then removing and filling with thickened expoxy and re-drilling. Others have suggested brilling them out wider first.
Others mention that acetone will absorb water.
What do y'all think? (The deck around the track seems sound, so ripping out and replacing all the balsa is not under consideration)
1. Drill out the holes (how larges?)
2. Dry with Acetone?
3. Fill with epoxy, then clear; Then re-fill with thinkened epoxy and re-drill?
