Adding screw inserts to slalom ski

Fellow slalom skiers,
I recently purchased a Connelly HP. Found a great deal on it without bindings. I have a Concept right now that I am about to sell, but I am keeping my sidewinder bindings for the new ski. Just decided to purchase a larger, more forgiving ski since I am only a recreational skier.

When the ski was delivered, it had very small holes where the screw inserts normally would be. But, not large enough for the actual screw inserts. I assume now it was cheaper because the ski was "unfinished."

I received my screw inserts and I'm ready to tackle this little project. I want an opinion from you regarding installing screw inserts. I will have to drill each hole a little bigger to make the screw insert fit. Is it as simple as that? Any tips or further information I should know?

Lastly, are you still using epoxy on the inside? Or, is that not necessary?

Your feedback is appreciated.
