    You glue them on with contact adhesive.

    Yes they are glued down. Pretty simple install.

    Both HydroTurfs and GatorGrips are good mats. If you ride with shoes you'll probably like the HT's better, if you ride barefoot the GGs are a bit softer.

    appreciate it. Definately do the shoe thing. Approximately how long does it take ofr the glue to set up once you put them down?

    Directions say allow the glue to set for 12hrs before going in the water. Be sure to have something to place on the mats as weight...helps the adhesion.

    one tip:
    a lot of glue is NOT better. I noticed that when I used more glue the mats wanted to peel up while drying but when I used less (what I thought was too little) the mats didn't peel during the drying process and seem to be on there just as good as the others.

    I agree with Lurker...

    I did it last night and went a little heavy on the glue on one side...That side wanted to peel and the other side was just fine...

    Here's a pic of the diamond plate Hydro-turf:

    what do you need to do to take off the original mats? aren't they held by rivets?

    A chisel will work fine...if they're stubborn you can drill them out. Don't forget to fill the holes with either epoxy or Goop.

    The diamond HT is nice. I'm still a little partial to their old design. With shoes the traction was amazing, but this is a little softer - still 100x better than stock though.
