To find the primer-applied surface on Recreational (camouflage) models: </p>
  1. </font><font face="Tahoma" size="3"> <p align="left">
  2. 1. Remove the bonnet from the machine.

    </p> <p align="left">
  3. 2. Look at the surface of the underside of the bonnet under bright light. The primer can be clearly seen around the hinge brackets and latch pin. The texture of the bonnet surface will have changed around the hinges IF the primer is present. The primer will feel sticky or tacky.

    </p> <p align="left">
  4. 3. If primer is not present, or </font><font size="3"><font face="Times New Roman">if the entire surrounding area of the hinge bracket or latch pin surface is not fully covered </font></font><font face="Tahoma" size="3">with primer, please replace the bonnet.

    1. <font face="Tahoma" size="3"> <p align="left">
    2. 1. Remove the bonnet from the machine.

      </p> <p align="left">
    3. 2. Locate a No. 2 pencil and paper.

      </p> <p align="left">
    4. 3. Color a section of paper with the pencil. <p align="left">
    5. 4. Rub your finger on the paper to get graphite on your fingertip. <p align="left">
    6. 5. Rub graphite around the hinges and latch pin. The primer will clearly stand out against the orange bonnet. The texture of the bonnet will have changed around the hinges brackets and latch pin if primer is applied. The primer will feel sticky or tacky.
