Default Snowboard bottom for longboard

Hey

Right now i'm making a very nice longboard out of a snowboard. i would like to put some wood and fiberglass against the coating underneath the snowboard. But the wax is a hard material to combine with others..
Does anyone has experience with the wax layer of the snowboard to glue/polyester/epoxy maybe it to get a solid attachment with the wood/fiberglass?
I can post a foto later of the result. Looks already awsome

Thanks for your help

The only glue that I can think of would be contact cement. It goes on as a liquid then dry's, so it should stick to both pieces.

What about using your trucks to connect everything? Can't you drill right through both pieces, then sandwich the two pieces & the trucks together with nuts & bolts?

Or maybe use T-nuts?

Thanks for the ideas,
I'll do some research about the 'contact cement' your talking about, don't know that kind of glue.
I think every glue goes on as a semi liquid and drys after
The trucks won't work i think, i prefer to make a solid connection for the hole lenght, more sustainable and stronger.

Nobody did allready a snowboard rebuild with some new bottom layers?

Contact Cement is pretty much rubber cement, the same stuff you would use to fix a flat tire on a bike.
It doesn't work like other glues though, when you apply Contact Cement you apply it to both pieces you intend to join. It's runny like water, & you use a very thin coat, as little as possible. Just make sure you get it everywhere.

**IMPORTANT**
You have to let the glue dry completely, before you stick them together. It drys really fast though, like 2 min or less fast. If you try to stick them together when they are still wet, it won't do shit.

If you don't think it will work, go try & peel your counter top off the shitty particle board that it is stuck too. Trust me it will work.


I made one kinda similar? I used a piece of 1/8 thick aluminum & attached it to a piece of wood with T-nuts.
There are some pics of it here, http://www.snowboardingforum.com/off...tml#post505344

In this pic http://www.snowboardingforum.com/att...-snowboard.jpg, the 5 little square patches of grip tape in between my feet have T-nuts counter sunk flush with the wood. The little pieces of grip tape are just to hide the ugliness.

In this pic you can see that the screws are Robertson flat head machine screws, Machine Screws - Flat Head, Oval Head, PAN head, Truss Head, Fillister Head, Binding Head and Combination Head-Peaksight Fastener, the hole has been countersunk as well so the bottom is nice & smooth they won't catch on anything.

Which was really important because of how low this thing was. You can see all the paint has been scratched off, if they weren't flush I'd be dead by now.

In this pic it has the aluminum on top with a piece of hard rubber as a spacer in the middle then the trucks on the bottom. http://www.snowboardingforum.com/att...front-drop.jpg
Just substitute my ingredients with your ingredients, put the snowboard on top, sandwich the wood in the middle, trucks on the bottom.
It worked fine for me.

I made it out of my old t.v. entertainment center.
I've been 100km/h on my old t.v. stand.
