My skins do great on the velvet side going up the mountain, but I've been having trouble getting them to stick on the bottom of my board. Any recommendations on a product to use to put on the bottom of them?

go to home depot or a painter's supply store and get a roll of masking paper, just a big roll of 6 or 7" wide brown paper to iron your old glue into. keep going until only fabric is visible on the glue side. You just won't have enough paper if you think a stack of grocery bags are going to get you there. The paper is like a sponge that draws the glue into it when you heat it up with your iron, so you have to keep using clean paper to absorb the glue.

paint a coat of Black Diamond's gold brand? adhesive on each skin on, add another coat after 2-3 hours.

DO this in a garage or some space that you don't live in, the toluene or other organic vapors are real strong and just keep going for a day or so.

I did the parchment paper on a set of older skins and holy crap they're sticky now. It flattened out all the rough bumpy spots and was very pleased.

Plus one on the parchment paper. It really works.
