    I use a razer knife and cut the center section out on the center hole on the sponson.Very simple task.Use the bottom hole in the front and center hole will be in the center of the opening and the rear bolt goes through the top of the sponson hole,giving it the angle you need.

    Remove sponsons. Slot the center hole using a razor blade so you can put the bolt in the center. Re-install sponsons with the front all the way up and the rear of the sponson all the way down, the ctr bolt will be in the center of the hole now.

    Exclamation ??????????????

    Hey JW..

    The best option is try it for yourself..!!!

    Pull the three mounting bolts out...

    Elongate the middle mounting hole into a slot stick them back on see if you like it..???

    Alternatively just take the bolts out.. put the front on in the up position..
    Then the rear in the down position.. never mind the middle till you test it..!!

    The theory behind stepping them is to give a little more lift and settle the ski a little more.....
    Also its done to try to solve some of the bounce(porpoising).....

    Did you get your ski finished yet..????? is it running now..???
