European mount/ To pull the nose cartlidge or not?

Submitted by Doug on 12/25/05 at 2:08 AM. ( )

I'm new to the whole european mount scene, but have found great info in the archives. Anyhow I boiled one up and pulled the nose cartlidge(the piece in between the nostrils) out. Someone told me your suppose to leave it in there. Not sure how I would have done that as the Sal Soda made mine turn into a noodle.

My next step is whitening. Any suggestions?, if not I'll search the archives, but I mainly want to know what you guys do with the verticle strip in the nose.

Thanks and Merry Christmas

The white part you're talking about is taken out.It's cartilage and not bone.All the other stuff in there stays.Peroxide for whitening.Rancid
