    I used gorilla glue to keep the toe plates from moving. Just don't use to much. it has a tendency to expand quite a bit.

    Re: boot weathering

    Mine stay in pretty well with just the two screws. I find that every once in a while I need to tighten them up but otherwise I'm good to go.

    Your weathering looks great btw!

    One more for GOOP. Plus the screws with a little GOOP. I also GOOPed on some foam wedges from an old pair of flip-flops so that there were no gaps between the shoe and the spikes.
