installing mulch kit

    I just received a mulch kit for my fastrak 52/20 but it came from the dealer with no instructions. I figured "how hard could it be" but it doesn't appear straightforward. The closure/block plate assembly looks easy, but I don't see any mounting holes for the baffles.

    I searched other posts and all I found was a comment from MowerConsultant that installation is easy and takes 10-15 minutes. So I must be missing something (since drilling holes through that deck doesn't equal easy). If anyone can post instructions or give me a tip, I'd appreciate it.

    There are pilot holes that need to be drilled up to 3/8, then the mulch kit installs in minutes.
    Drilling the holes is easy, do it in 2 steps, first use a smaller bit to open up the pilot holes that are there and second, use the 3/8 bit to finish.
