Damaged Base look
 
I scratched up my base pretty bad. Let me know what it would take to repair this thanks:

nothing too bad at all, fill in the scratch with ptex. but overall your base looks like it is just screaming for a nice hot wax, youll feel like you have a new board once you wax it

Nicely Done. Did that board ever have any wax on it?

You need a base grind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't worry about scratches that run parallel to the edges (tip to tail) - they just act more like a heavy stone grind (get rid of any little dangly hairs though).

It's the perpendicular (edge to edge) scratches that slow you down. I fill the deeper ones with p-tex, even if they aren't core shots (or you can get a base grind...hard to tell with you graphics, but your base looks pretty thrashed).

Even if you wax it the scratches will just get filled up with wax and slow you down. As mentioned above, you should get a base grind. It'll be impossible to fill in every scratch w/ ptex.
