SHAPER SINCE 1958
I do remember “Onion Skin”. It was the paper they used in Carboned invoice books. The bottom sheet. Volan probably didn’t help hide the paper edge either. I did Volan over a rice paper lam once, just a football and of course you could see the edge of the football. Everybody thought it was authentic because of the halo.
Two “ball pin” dings cleaned up an ready for fill. Staying away from the pin line as much as possible.
Sand the board, the whole board with 80 grit. Back to bare bones(cloth). take the resin line off if need be.
Fix all dings (spray bits if needed etc) Like back to lam stage.
Re-pin line it.
Finnish coat it.
restored old beat. nice yeah?
Just do it mate damn
"If it wasn't for the ocean, I wouldn't be here"
I'd just fix the dings and try to keep the original glass/pin lines there. It's not beat up enough for a restoration job. Keep them pics coming.
Send me your dinged, damaged, and yellowed.
Right. It’s not bad enough to take it to the weave. I got enough going on, not going to create more work for myself. And it won’t make a dimes difference in the value of the board.
Sanded off the blue paint around the screw. Thinking about leaving as is
So I am on the road and haven’t had time to do pics etc before I left PC for Calif. I will tell you that I used Brown Sugar as a filler and it was very close. I’ll get you a pic after I’ve made my loop to Millennium, Marko and Arctic. O’side, here I come. Been looking for Kelly’s Wave Farm this AM as I do I-5. Here’s a pic of a very inconsistent spot North of State Line. This is not the best I’ve seen it and only the 4th time I have seen it rideable after checking it at least 20 or 30 times while traveling South.
Have had several side tracks both Glassing and shaping, but back at this later today.
