    Default 2015 Mojo Plate removal

    I have all the bolts and screws out, does anybody know of a good way to get that plate removed from the back of the boat? I tried a heat gun to heat up the epoxy and a hammer and that didnít make it budge. Any ideas?

    What plate are you referring to? The trim plate?

    Plate? Like the wake plate hinge?

    Debond spray, scoring the edges, the longer and more spray used the easier it comes off, use some small wood shims to help pry it off slowly after using the debond.

    debond and soak it for a few days and wood shims otherwise you'll scratch/break the gel coat getting them off.

    Tap the shims in a little each time you use the debond, gotta go really really slow.

    I take it you have manual flow tabs now? Or you jist upgrading the autoflow tabs?

    Couldn't you jist reuse the hinges if you had autoflow already?

    Yes, it has the manual tabs and I want the plates next to the center plate like they make them now. I also want control in the cockpit.

    I'm looking to do the same upgrade this winter.

    Any reason you went with Evolution over other? Price?
