Ooops...drilled a hole in my ski boot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I was having some troubles with my boot buckles, and was attempting to drill out the rivets that hold them together and replace with screws (boots are Tecnica Phoenix 90). Successfully fixed the issue that I was having with the boot buckles, but my drill bit wandered and I sunk a partial hole in the plastic of my ski boot. It is around the area of the top cuff buckle.

 

My question is - will this hole potentially cause cracking in the plastic of the boot, and is there anything I should due to repair the hole to prevent the boot from cracking.

It is not a through hole. It is a blind hole that goes about 1/3 in to the plastic.

 

I'm leaning toward ignoring it...

ignore it.  nothing you can do to re-fill it.   If a crack starts, deal with it then
