Setting the shoe with precision?
How do you guy set the shoe with precision from side to side? I know the nickel into the hull for shoe height, but are there any tricks for getting the same distance between the shoe and hull on each side and front to back? ..Or is eyeballing it enough?

Do a "dry" run with the shoe bolted in and install a stock intake grate. Measure everything and when happy mark across the shoe and hull with a sharpie so you can go back in the same spot when using the sealant

Yea I was gonna mark it before I took it off, but forgot
I have to readjust my brackets after my reinforcement install since I didnt notice that the shoe had moved out of place so that makes it more difficult. I am hating myself for not sealing the shoe before-hand.

You put the nickel in between the top of the shoe and the hull to get the correct height? So I'm assuming you are leaving the nickel up there???? Sorry for the noob question but this is the first time I'm putting my ski together on my own.
I've already installed the ppk into the shoe, and I will be mounting a r&d 1200 grate along with a jim's FF plate. Any tips for me when I'm putting it all back together? I've read for hours on the forum but just looking for any well kept secrets

I can't believe there isn't a sticky on the most important part of the GPR setup.
