Separating the fuselage from the first side of a new mold
Is it a bad idea to separate the plug from the first side of the mold to clean up the first side?
I'm cleaning up the clay used to seal the parting board. I've noticed that there are a few areas that i cant really get to with the plug still in it. But, as this is my first attempt at making a mold, I'm not sure if I should pull the plug or not.
Haven't read anything on any of the 100's of threads/posts that I've read.
Any help would be appreciated.
Also, since the surface isn't perfectly smooth.... can I soft sand with 800 grit to polish off the few locations that need it?

The danger is damaging the plug upon removal (common occurance) or not being able to fully seat the plug back into the first mold half (hard to notice and makes an incorrect mold).
