Base repairs
 
1 Attachment(s)
So, I got rocked pretty hard on a c box with a loose bolt and was thinking of the getting a base repair done on the board. It's only a minor 2 inch gouge on the nose perpendicular to the edge but I have a couple days before I can ride again so I figured I'd fix it or get it fixed.

Looking for a harder fix then p-tex candles have given me in the past since it's right on the contact point. Might bring it to the shop if I can find one with a decent repair shop if they can do harder materials then candles. Anyway, expert advice is always welcome:bowdown:.

Yeah, that's fuckin nothing! Scrape the ptex sticking up with an exacto blade and fill it with wax. My base is half destroyed and I'm just thinking of getting a base weld and grind now... I don't know if a shop would even bother welding that, they'd probably just candle it too.

Bah! Although I've half destroyed it going over rocks (I've determined that rocks are a normal thing at Lake Louise, it's not just an early season issue), I still have never had a base grind so there's tons of material left to work with.

I'll just get a shop to fix up the edges, fill the deepest gouges, and then grind the whole base. Should be good for another few years of rock usage! :yahoo:
