Finished working on the mounts ... for tonight. Working them with brass bristle brush MEK and paper towels. I tried to finish them off with a glass bead blaster. I think one is looking good. The other still feels / looks like it has some glue on it. The blasting is leaving a gritty finish on remaining glue while the bare rubber just turns matte and not so gritty. I guess i will go back to the brass bristle brush MEK and paper towels next.

Finally got most if not all of the glue. I followed yalls advice and went back to the sand paper flapper wheel. However this time i used my AC powered dremel not the cordless.
In the picture i am showing the rear corner joint. This seams to be a tricky spot. It leaked here for years. How do you get this corner sealed up tight?

Made the transom to mount joints today. Used g flex thickened epoxy for the first time. It seamed to work great. Surface was prepped with laquer thinner and 80grit sand paper. Fixtured it by strapping it between pumped tight tubes.

Interesting. I have stuck to two part pvc glue for transom applications, but I don't doubt that G/Flex will bond big time. It's not like those joints are going to get rolled up (the G/Flex is stiffer than two part glue when cured), but you sure aren't going to get them apart in one piece again either!

I use G/Flex a lot to bond odd materials like pe foams. That stuff is impressive.

My transom is coated with epoxy as it had some water damage. It is my understanding that pvc glue like sta bond will not bond very well to the epoxy. That is why i went with the gflex on the mount to transom and the pvc floor to transom joints. Which made tonight. Ill send more pix tomorrow.

After days of rebuilding the transom and removing old glue we are finally ready to glue the fool back into the blue bomber. BTW liberal amounts of lacquer thinner and a brass bristle wire brush turned out to be the most effective for me. More pix later.

The floor is adhered. It took about 350 cc of sta bond including accelerator. Thanks again for all the advice.
