Drain plug question

Ok so this weekend I'm gonna spray upol raptor liner on the floor of my xj. Now I pulled out my drain plugs before to rinse out the inside and reinstalled them. I was thinking of takeing them out spraying the floor and spraying the plugs on a piece of cardboard. I just wanna see what you other guys have done with your drain plugs. thanks

Ok another question, I had sprayed duplicolar bed armor on some spot on my floor. I used a wire wheel in my drill and its not coming off so easy. If I just get most off and wipe it all down with acetone will that cause a problem?

shouldnt..

but leave the drain plugs how they are. its just going to fall off ater squeezing the plugs in and out anyways.

i find drain plugs to be pointless.. for a wheeler. once water gets a little higher than the doors water finds its way in other ways. mine are perminately removed and i also added a few more so when i do get water in my jeep it just drains out as soon as i get out of the water/mud. i do get a slight draft up my leg from time to time though
