    I've removed a doorbell from the front of my house and am now left with this - how easy would it be to 'repair'? IMG_6787.JPG

    Use a screw to pull the plugs out and squeeze in some brown silicone?

    Find a similar brick where you can drill a few holes
    Collect the dust.

    Make a blob of mixed aroldite and add some dust, shove it in the hole and add a bit of surface dust

    problem with usin brick dust is that these bricks only have the colour burned on the outside - the face skin.
    as suggested, brown silicone/sealant will do.
    it will weather to match in time.
