Marking Dark Monokote
Author: Unknown

Marking Dark Monocote

Putting any kind of decent marks on monocote is really tough, especially if the monocote is a dark color. This becomes a hassle for you when trying to accurately place control horns or mount a switch to a surface that's already covered.

Try putting down a piece of masking tape in the approximate location. Then line up the horn or switch plate and make your marks on the tape! The marks are quite visible, and you can cut or drill right through the tape. Then you can pull off the tape easily by pulling it sideways over itself; i.e. don't pull straight up or you may lift the covering material.

Bending an end of the tape back on itself before applying will give you a nice handle to grab to peel the tape off.
