Default mounting screws though base....help?

Ive just fitted new bindings to my board (flow teams to a burton custom) however the screws i used were slightly too long and the base of by board now has 6 dimples sticking out of it... Will this have caused huge damage to my board, is it still rideable and safe? I have replacedthe screws with the correct size but the dimples are still there....

Thanks in advance for any advice

David

If you didn't crack the base or anything you might be ok with a ghetto fix. I fixed a friend's board with this problem once. Remove the bindings and screws. I used a hairdryer to heat up the base, then ran an ice cube over the dimples. Sounds erotic, I know. But it causes the base to expand a bit, then the ice shrinks it back. It got rid of the dimples, but I don't know if there would be more extensive damage.

Don't feel bad. It's more common than you might think.
