Always check the fit before assembly.
The plastic plat fits snug.

After removing the pieces, I shot some of this foam in the voids left from the old holes. A little insulation never hurts, and it makes a good water barrier.

Install the plate, and screw down with some number ten size sheet metal screws. some of the excess squeezes out.
The sharp observer will see two holes that the screw would not hold in, so I filled them with 505.

It was not in very good shape anyway. You have to remover some lag screws, and the shocks to get the top off. You can see a hole in the bottom of the photo. Two large cracks in the top are also visible here.
