Dear Anette,
	My first thought to your query of removing the PMMA and replacing
with epoxy was,  "WHY on earth would you want to do that?"  In case you
couldn't guess - I'm not a big fan of epoxy.  However, PMMA can easily (but
slowly) be removed by returning, after trimming excess plastic, to the
liquid, inhibited methylmethacrylate monomer and stirring, stirring,
stirring(automatic stirrer suggested).  Remove "gummy" areas daily to speed
up the process.  Please note that if you choose to embed in epoxy that,
after a certain point of curing, you CANNOT remove the epoxy.  This is
based on a very bad personal experience with a one-of-a-kind implant/tissue.
	Best Wishes,
