anders_aIt's stupid easy with a proper jig and the right drillbit.
Please dont do random bad papermounts...
ethanshredzI've done plenty of paper mounts and they're honestly not that hard, but there are a few key things to note to ensure success.
1. Use a centre punch to create a small divot in the topsheet for each hole. This will prevent your drill bit from wandering.
2. If you don't have a proper ski drill bit, use a 5/32" or a 4mm, and wrap Gorilla tape around it leaving exactly 9mm exposed. This will prevent you from drilling through the ski.
3. Double check that your paper template matches the screws on your bindings, and take a few measurements with a plastic ruler to be sure you've got the scaling right!
4. If you have access to one, use a Pozi #3 screwdriver to install your bindings, not a Phillips #3. It'll fit the screws a lot better and prevent stripping the heads.
Good luck man!
skiP.E.I.In addition to this, before you start you need to make extra sure you have the precise center of your skis from side to side, to line the center line of your jig up with. This step can take the longest time of the whole process.
Sticking some tape on the ski will let you mark it without leaving a line on your topsheet.
There are several good video tutorials if you search it too.
