So i found out that tpex (witch i tought would do the job) did not work to good..
Some of the t-nuts are exposed of the epoxy, and tpex will not stick to them..

Just read online the i might need Copolymer repair material ?
where can i get it ? Didn't show up to much on google/ebay :banghead:

Is this stuff something most ski/snowboard clubs might have :?

Thanks

(did some searching on this here, but posts that came up was blank, maybe from an old forum :? )

Just use G-Flex Epoxy for the t-nuts and sand it down. Way easier and will be bullet-proof when cured.

I have had issues with the Skin glue pulling out P-tex fillers. I dremeled out the p-tex and epoxy and did it flush and haven't had an issue since.

Good luck! :drinks:
