Removing P-Tex?

I p-tex'd my sinthered base but I feel like I could do a better job so I'm wondering how you remove the ptex candle after you've applied it. Also I have a Die cut base, the scratch goes throguh the two different bases and the ptex cracked where the bases meet. Also there's a small gap between the two bases.

Bust out the razor knife and go to town like you're carving a turkey.

I very carefully file any splinters, then apply P-tex, then scrape.

Scrape just like you would when waxing. After you can't feel the transition to the patch, wax as normal.

Incidentally, there's roughly 1,350,028,243,500 videos on youtube about how to do this. This might be a slight exaggeration, but not by much.

No after you do it all, finished scraping, rode a couple of times, then come back to it and want to remove the ENTIRE ptex filling. No need to be an ass.

Just dig it out with the corner of a plastic scraper. Then reapply as you would.

I would try and lever it up with a small blade, then slowly pull it with some needle nose pliers. If you are lucky it might come out nicely like that.

Was this a core shot (was the core exposed)? You also could have exposed the core if the dwo diecut sections are split from each ther enough to expose it.

yes, the scratch I p-tex'd was a core shot. The gap in the die cut base is very small but i'm afraid it will widen or moisture will get in there then freeze and expand.

Got it. You want to cut out the old repair right down to the core. There will be no harm in cutting just outside the old repair. You want to make sure that you get out all of the damaged base edges at the die cut seam. If these are not perfectly bonded to each other and the core then they can/will allow moisture through to the core. Once you have a clean wound you can under cut (angle cut) the edges of the gash. Then base material can be added. Base welds at the seam of a die cut are not easy and can cause future problems if they are poorly done. I would highly suggest bringing this one to a shop that has the gear to do this.
