snowfiend Nope, just the candle. But I think it turned out pretty well so until I need to redo I'll be fine.

dantech Nice. That should be alright that you scraped some of the core, as long as you didn't take a huge chunk out. Also are you using something like metalgrip to bond it to the base? If not, I would use that at the core then go over that with the ptex candle.

snowfiend Thought I'd let everyone know I removed the old ptex filling by using the edge of my plexy glass scraper and fine tuning with a razor. Though at the part where the white core was showing the scraper actually scrapped away some of that.

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.

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.

eer5000 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.

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