Question Minor board repairs..

Hey forum, I have recently bought myself 3 Salomon boards brand new for $86 because of manafacturing defects... I have two questions in repairing these boards.. the first board that needs repairing has an over drilled binding hole.. So the drill has gone through the base, I need to repair the base.. I was wondering how to do this? A picture is attached.

And the second board I need to repair the base also, the base is kind of fluffy... I don't know how to explain it exactly but its like it wasnt finished, I was thiking of just getting a base grind to fix this.. what do you think? Again, a picture is attached..

Thanks!!

The one with the hole- fill the hole with ptex and use it for a rock board (it's the season to use them in NZ). Or take it to a board doctor and get them to look at it, I believe it to be fucked though.

The other one just needs a base grind and a decent wax.

Before adding ptex, I'd insert a screw to that hole. Just to make sure you won't fill the hole too much with ptex.

Those first two look like they've been ridden a bit.

How about something harder underneath the ptex. Epoxy?

I do agree.. I'm not 100% sure they are brand new... but I mean $86 for three boards! Thanks for the help guys, I was thinking epoxy underneath the P tex too so I'll give it a go filling it with p tex and the other one I will give it a base grind!

Thanks guys!
