Default 5200 Removal

I want to take the three aluminum plates off my rear deck that the table posts screw into so I can get them powder coated.
But theyíre bonded most likely with 5200... Anyone got tips or tricks for freeing them up? Iíll try the torch to carefully warm them up and soften the 5200, but was wondering if thereís anything else that works. Prying on them is going to tear up the gel coat around them...

Try De-bond, just spray it on and it will soften the 5200.

Those are mounted with screws, I doubt it is 5200. Any de-bonding chemical. Even acetone works pretty well. Heat works well. Force does not. If you have to use for, slow, steady pressure. If you've ever shucked an oyster, it's much like that slow, steady, constant pressure gently increasing.

Yeah screws are all out. Looks like different sealant on all of them, but the stuff on the screws was all white and tough like 5200. Iíll try warming them up and a braided steel wire to cut it.
In the spring, I changed my sonar transducer, which was bedded with like 1/4 tube of 5200. That was not fun at all!

Heat, braided wire, acetone, and prying all contributed to removing all three. Off to powder coat now!
