I doubt it was stolen. Dude seemed legit. I met him at his house and he was wearing an old Sparks R&D t-shirt. He said he just wanted it to go to someone who would use it. He was stoked to hear it would be my first split. He's gonna buy a K2 Panoramic.
Saturday saw on ytube...instead of re-glue...use baking/cooking parchment paper and an iron to reheat the glue and it comes back to stickiness...or perhaps squirt some additional new glue and re-heat them to get it to flow and mix...anyway was discussing it with a skiier bud. It looked very doable.

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.
Awesome pick up! Check out Mountain Gear's website to see if they have any Sparks left from last year, they were still in stock and on sale two weeks ago when I ordered! BUT if you're not planning on going with Sparks, I'll take those LT touring brackets from ya (and give you my Voile ones AND slider plates).
