What's the best way to stick monti plate on rock?
I just used milliput and it fell of 20 mins later.

Well maybe not from that seller because of the negative feedback.

Ok scrap that idea, I cant find any reviews on it. Started watching it just the other day but there's not enough info in it for me to really give it a go without worrying.

Yes seen that, would it work if there's no hole to
Put it in?

I guess you just squish it down into a lumpy bit of rock, and it should mould into all the little nooks and crannies and get enough of a grip to stick.
