Insert replacement ?

Now that my new board is on the way I've been thinking about drilling a 4x4 pattern on my old board so I can use modern bindings on it a use it as a park board. Does anyone have any resources on how to replace a insert or adding in new inserts into the board ?

I don't know alot about how to build a snowboard other than watching the "How its made" segment on Discovery, but I think that inserts have to be layered into the board during construction. I don't see how you can add them after the fact.

Snowboard Materials binding inserts. If you search around for "t-bolts" or splitboard how too's you should find good directions.

They sell some with ptex base material already glued to the bottom. Drill out the hole pound these in and you golden. A good shred/ski shop should stock some.
