Any help would be greatly appreachated! I was thinking to use some goof off to remove the sticky crap and then rewax the base. March 15, 2006 at 9:08 pm #587464 bcrider 4149 Posts Doh! Try Goo-be-gone, or a citrus cleaner, or a non-solvent paint thinner.

March 16, 2006 at 4:57 pm #587468 mtnrider 740 Posts I’ve had some bad experience w/ goof-off and simple green on the base material. Remember that it is pourous and will take in some of the liquid. My problems occured w/ the material before it was already layed up as a snowboard though. It might not have an affect now that it is all glued together. I know simple green has something in it that will stay in the base material though. I probably wouldn’t use either of them.

The glue on your skins is probably messed up too. You’ll need to strip that as well and apply gold label glue or bd glue strips. I got some glue strips if you need ’em.
