I've got him covered on re gluing the skins. I have this handy little device called a glue iron. It's for removing skin glue. It's a wide flat blade that gets very hot. It removes skin glue like a hot knife through butter. Just re apply new skin glue, done.
Looks like BD is being a bit of a pita with Gold Label though. No more cans of it. Spot tubes and glue strips only. I'll have to look and see what REI has. My gut feeling is that a couple of the tubes would work better than the strips and cheaper. But I don't know on that one. Shouldn't be hard to figure out.
Definitely get some Sparks. Check Bentgate to see if they have any last years Burner's left.
