11.2. Sand Adhered Surface

  1. Using 60 grit sandpaper, scuff the entire back and bottom of the Transom Plate by hand. You may use a Dual Action Sander (DA), but you must be extremely careful not to remove excess material. DO NOT use a grinder or heavy abrasive for this process. The mounting surface of the Transom Plate should have a matte gray finish when properly prepared with sandpaper. Note: Be careful not to sand down the standoff bumps on the plate circled in blue below.
