Not sure where to ask this question really.
I have this type of plastic shutters:
with holes already drilled into them:
They are sun-faded and some got blown off during a storm so I painted them and bought some of the spikes that were previously used to hang them.
However, I have run into some issues.
1. All the spikes break off when trying to remove them and most of them are stuck inside the house. I've tried to drill them out but it doesn't work that well. What is a good method to remove these spikes?
2. The new spikes seem to be a bit smaller in diameter than the existing holes in the house and they didn't really go in tightly. Should I glue a square of OSB over the existing holes and simply re-drill? If this is a good idea, this will eliminate the need to put each shutter back up where they were originally
