Thread: Repair Question

  1. #1

    Repair Question

    So my buddy gave me a board to repair, it was backed into in his garage, and it's got a pushed in square of glass. Here's my question: should I cut out the glass that's pushed in or just pour the filler over top of the pushed-in section? Haven't handled this type of repair till now, so wondering if anyone has any advice.

    Thanks!!

    Cut out the pushed in glass, fill hole with qcell resin mix, send flat after setting, repair as normal from there

    After you put the filler in you can tape a piece of wax paper over it so it comes out smooth and cuts down sanding time.

    I could understand both sides of the story there- to cut or not to cut...

    From my ding repair experience I have found that you can make the repair look much nicer without cutting, as long as the pushed in glass is still attached to the foam well. Just sand and fill and maybe glass on top. I don't think the little bit of extra weight will be noticed... Plus it will be stonger- and like I mentioned, it will look better- since the resin is clear it will retain the right color and you will not end up with the bright white qcell look- like the other dings that where repaired there.

    if you dont cut it out, chances are that the repair wont bond well to the old glass. Makes a much better repair to cut it out

    As long as you sand the old glass and the old glass is still attached to the foam- it will bond. If you don't sand or rough up the old glass- your right the new glass will not stick.

    This. if the pushed in glass is still bonded, just rough sand it, and repair over it...Its it loose and disconnected, cut it out
