Motogp990 What I do, is make sure the base is flush before I Ptex.

If the area around the gouge is raised, I try to press it down with the edge of my metal scraper and if that doesn't work, I use a razor blade and shave any raised parts flush.

After that, I Ptex and scrape the Ptex flush with the base.

FYI: when I say shave with a razor blade, no matter how bad the gouge, I've never had to shave that much.

speedjason what you need is some tape and sand paper (maybe #800 or even more coarser). tape the good are and sand the repair area so its flush. then wax.

Board Repair.. Smooth out base

Doing some repairs on my family's boards in the off season.
I have been using Ptex Candles, and SkiMender. Problem I am running into is Smoothing repair area. Procedure I have been using is to fill in gouge with Ptex, let it cool then scrape with Stanley Surform Tool to get smoother. then I follow up with Metal scraper. Maybe I am being anal, but repair is still not smooth.
Is there a type of sandpaper or other tool, to smooth out repair? would like to be cheap enough for a diy.
