    Ride Plate Truing Questions

    What else can I do while Im under here today. I know I need to sand my waterweld job smooth but what else can anyone see that I can do???

    What grit paper do I need to buy to sand my plate. I need to run to lowes to grab some.

    Thanks in advance!

    cut the oem sealer and redue all around the ride plate. Get somw tape and tape off the hull & ride plate but leave 1/4" gap. apply rightstuff being carefull to be neat. then pull the tape off and use wd-40 on your finger to smooth it all now let dry and your gtg

    Got lazy and didnt do it today. Going to do all that in the morning though. What grit paper do I need to use on the plate and to smooth out the waterweld?

    think i started with 50-80 to knok down the excess and worked my way up to i think 240. its hard sanding so youll want some course paper to start.
