Once your trophy fish has reached the finishing department, the fiberglass fish reproduction body is cleaned of the release agent.
Then the edges of the body are trimmed away and bondo is applied to smooth out the seams. Real or replica bills, teeth and fins can now be attached to the reproduction fish mount.
A hand painted glass eye is added and a hanger is placed on the back. A primer coat of paint is then applied. Any imperfections are fixed and inspected. The fishmount is now ready for the painting process.
