I agree with the epoxy comment above, Plumber's Epoxy is the bomb. Don't use G-Flex for this application.

Having said all that, Z makes some very good points.
I promise to take all cautionary recommendations to heart. Truthfully, even though my confidence that I can do the 8nstall myself is increasing as I research, I can’t say the same for the dono4 skis. I’m considering seeking out better bindings then what I have available here - I’ll have to think that over.
Regarding epoxy, I’ve used JB weld in the past (non- ski stuff). Is that acceptable or should I be looking at something else?

JB weld will do the trick. Get the stuff for wood. Shit don't even drill holes just JB themto the skis... And that ky comment was Larry of the hook and I got nothing.

I laughed. I started writing a response and a customer called me mid way through- never got back to it

I’m dithering still. I discovered the bindings I wanted to use are only DIN 7s so then I started thinking my Solomons were the logical choice since I’ll probably never ski them again but I don’t think I have the heart to pull them apart. Don’t know why I’m being sentimental about them.

I think these are gonna be my donors actually. They probably have the fewest days on them of any skis I own. I forgot I still had them

Never done it. What tools and/or materials do I need? Where should I get them? I need the full tutelage here.
Take a look at the pictures by someone who obviously has mounted bindings DIY a lot.  He was working on a brand new pair of DPS skis, which are even pricier when having to ship to Australia.

That’s awesome. Lot of holes there. I’ve determined that I can use the rear holes if I want but it’s gonna cause the fronts to be just a hair forward.
