The DOW 995 under the cleat surface should come off cleanly when the tape is removed - if any bits remain at the narrow end you can use a longer 9mm snap off knife to get in there:
(something like one of these)

If the cleat surface wasn't covered with tape and has DOW 995 adhered to it - the longer blade and a bit of elbow grease will help is the best way to clean it up.

I've watched this video a couple of times. I really wish there was a PDF document outlining the steps, and conversions from mm to inches. I had to take screen captures and pause the videos several times to get all the steps.

Thanks for the suggestion! It's not something we can do immediately, but we will put it on the list of topics to consider for future articles.

How did your project turn out with the French Cleats?
