It was only the top layer of fiberglass that delaminated. The bottom layer, which is epoxy, is still intact. So no, I didn't apply paint thinner directly to the foam. THAT would be REALLY dumb.
Also didn't use any fiberglass cloth or q-cell although the q-cell may have been a good idea. The area is so thin that I thought I could get away with just a couple of layers of resin.
And finally, no Jesus you can't have my board. Not yet at least...

Could you guys just get a room? The joke is getting kind of old.

How many threads is the shelf life for this routine?

After looking at the pictures, there's a lot of issues with this board, including water damage along the stringer. Looks like mold growing in the foam, which is pretty common with old, waterlogged boards. I wouldn't invest much into repairing it, except for sanding down that resin you added, and putting a layer or two of cloth over the area. Then sand that down, and paint some resin over that. Sand it smooth and ride it.

Thanks zaGaffer/LBCrew! Words of wisdom. There's an extra layer of fiberglass that didn't delaminate so I think I'm safe with the foam not dissolving. Also, not too worried strength b/c it's the bottom of the board and it's already got a layer of fiberglass. At this point, I think I'm just gonna plow ahead and finish it off with a little more resin. Like you guys said, her days are numbered. I'll follow up and let you know when she finally kicks the bucket...
