    Post them up, before, during, and after shots. Old projects or new, the nastier the better. Doesn't have to be done right, as long as you're having fun.Backyard/garage jobs for the win!

    I am afraid to post it , because I think I screw a good board trying to fix some defects , and I pour some glass on it, since the area was big enough to glass it, but not so big to take the old fiberglass off (and do a good job).
    So I poured in the resin, to cover the many spots it has. And now it looks like shit. But the wholes are covered, and is water tight again.
    The board is a Con CC rider, 9' 04''

    This was my 1st attempt @ even a ding repair never mind restore. 9'6" Phillips Pintail. Board I wish I never sold as it was a blast to surf. I learned allot surfing and patching this board. Patched her, taped her off, hit her with some epoxy rattle can. Looked alright until I tried clear coating it and it reacted with the paint.

    I'm going to have to dig around and see if I can find some photos. Maybe of a few that turned out well... and definitely of a few that turned out less so!

    SReilly I'm wondering if you had it to do over again if you would have just made the phillips water tight and rode it. When I see things like that PHILLIPS on the bottom of the board that is pure history right there. I honestly don't work on my own boards but when I get a board I have them "fluffed and buffed" repaired and made water tight. I enjoy the story of a repaired vintage board. They are only original once as they say.

    Shady as he is, I'm with Dave on this one. In fact, in some cases I even avoid using qcell as the repairs come out bright white when you use it.
