Sand the holes to open them to fit. It doesn't take much pressure or time to make a diffrence in fiberglass.

Make sure to chamfer the edges of the gel coat to prevent future cracking. This is a stone wheel.

This is how the holes should look when finished......I think. Notice the chamfer in the gel edge.

Dry fit complete, anyone know how much I should torque the nuts down when I finally get the sealer?

Good job! I did mine also. Even with it measured out and a template made, my heart raced until I slid the cleat into the holes and it fit.

Cameron, did you use any backing plate or just the big washers? How much did you torque them ?

This is also on my list and have 4 to install. But the 205 didn't have them so I have to figure out the best spots to be functional but also aesthetically good, too.
