Hi All,

Have some damage on my North wham and wondering what I should do...

I have some blue epoxy solarez with me... Should I just apply it over the whole blister... Or take off the blister and apply it then, which would leave a big spot with no color...

Thanks for any advice!!!

its a bit hard to see...is there a crack that goes under the pad?

If so and you really want to fix the board you might have to lift it to see how it looks.

Thx for the reply...

Crack does not go under pad... Basically paint has a blister and is coming off where the paint / coat cracked...

Thanks for any advice!

remove and fix the whole spot or you might have it crack again around the outside

What he said. Light sanding to get rid of paint wherever there is any hint of crack; clean with alcohol then apply solarez or whatever the epoxy is.

Thats a very easy fix .

a) use 80 grit paper to really remove all the detached material and prepare the area for epoxy.
b) make sure the board is absolutely dry
c) apply SunCure Fiberglass. You can buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/Ding-All-Cure-Sur ... 736&sr=1-2
Make sure you apply it VERY GENEROUSLY. It is better to put more then less.
d) leave it under the sun for 30mins
e) use first 80 grit, then 150 and then 220 grit paper and sand the area where u made the repair. Go easy, don't overdoit. If you already used a sander, you can use an electric one but gotta be careful, those guys are pretty powerful. If not just sand paper from your hardware store. Sanding is what makes the repair look good.
f) you can paint over the repair matching the color of the board.

Easy fix with the solar Rez you already have.

1. Make sure area is completely dry.
2. Remove any loose fiberglass with 80-100 grit sand paper and lightly sand around the area where the resin will be applied.
3. Wipe the area with an alcohol swab and let it dry.
4. While in a shaded area, apply a small amount of solar-Rez over the ding.
5. Firmly cover the ding with a piece of plastic grocery bag cut prior that covers the entire ding.
If you do this correctly, the resin will be flush with board so there will be very minimal sanding if any at all. Think of the plastic as a piece of transparent skin being stretched over the ding.
6. Once the plastic is in place, carefully take the board out in the sun for a minute or so. You can use tape to keep the plastic in place, but it's not necessary if you just hold the plastic in place firmly with your hand.
7. Take the plastic off and that's it. Whole process takes less than 10 minutes.

I would not use a lot of resin as suggested earlier. The worst part of fixing a ding is sanding it. Just use enough to cover the ding(it's less than you think). The most sanding you should have to do is very light sanding with fine paper. If you keep wrinkles out of the plastic, you may not have to sand at all.
Good luck :D
