Sure, but Irvin's right, here: If you are in the beginning phases of matching and experimentation, it makes VERY LITTLE sense to put weight under the CAPs. Any time you want to make a change you'll have to remove them, and then run the risk of not being able to get the CAPs back on. Don't remove them at all right now until you've fine tuned and perfected your process/specs.
As far as grommets and repair, check this thread out. VERY cool method to have in your "toolbox" as it were:
