Indents are cuased by overtightening which "pulls up" the base. Bumps are caused by incorrect (too long) hardware or debris in the inserts which bulge the base.

It MAY be debris in the inserts. I'll check it after. I'll also run to the hardware store later and get some screws.

Don't let the wax smoke. Turn temperature of the iron DOWN til it stops smoking.

Why worry about ptex unless you've already coreshot your board? Get someone who knows how to make a nice ptex job if you are worried about the way it looks... or don't run over rocks perhaps

Do you put your board in a board-bag after riding? The only time I've gotten rusted edges was when I did that - so long as the board can breath and dry it shouldn't rust.

What about shallow bonks and whatnot? Ptex or not?

I was putting it in a board bag last season, so far this year I've brought it dry in a board bag, and left it wet in the trunk because I get lazy.
