9. Repeat steps 5-8 for the second plate.
10. Remove the plastic, sheeting and molds from the plates. Place the mold back on the plate and make a hole in center of the plate so the center post hardware can fit through. Use an awl or screwdriver to make the appropriate sized hole. Check the hole for size.
