I've been pretty satisfied with the quality of Rustoleum (universal) and Krylon paints (both very flexible) but it looks like Montana offers some additional colors.

You're a fricken Magician Dub. I'm headed to the garage to fix some reef cuts and deck cracks on my venerable SIC 17.5 V1. I shouldn't have looked at your recent work before I do that. Shatters my delusions of competence.
Ponohouse is for sale: http://www.ponohouse.com

Thanks Pono! Just take your time on the repairs, plus lots of sanding when you think your done sanding then sand some more. Or you can take this small advice  i often tell people “just think like the material” haha or maybe not.

Like I've said before...if you ever want to come east for a working vacation I have a great setup for guests...and a nice two car garage with tools....:) Of course if word gets around you're willing to travel you'll have invites to more interesting locales than Plymouth.....unless you have a fondness for the Pilgrims.....:)

I'd love to restore my 12'6" but I simply don't have the skills to do it justice. Sentimental reasons for wanting it restored and not just repaired...It's the board Pono gave me to start this journey.  It needs a LOT of work and I don't know of anyone local doing work at your level of quality. I snapped it years ago and had it repaired...it got stuck together and re-skinned with an additional layer of 6 oz. ...ugly along the break, heavy, and made the board feel horrible. Now a large section of the re-skin on the tail has delammed....:(

Just noticed the response....Seriously? That would be very awesome. Let me send you some pics before you commit though....she's in rough shape..... :(. It's the original Starboard 12-6. Exposed Australian Pine veneer both top and bottom so that adds to the complexity. The guy who "fixed it" for me has sworn off repairing sandwich construction since I heard.... :P

Lighting is a key element to getting almost perfect color matches - three different day time conditions

eDUBz,
Do you ever use an oscillating multi tool for sanding.  My ability to get resin only where I want to get it is, well, less than noteworthy. Wondering if someone with a light touch would benefit from the multitool for knocking down some of the hills?

Not multi tools sanders - but the standard 5” hook and loop variable speed sanders like the DeWalts and Makitas

Are you finishing those with 2K clear or poly hot and buff?

Both also depends on the project, no rules to repair work and color matching.  8)  I’m currently not doing anymore repairs at the moment, not sure when I’ll get back to it  :)

Here’s what Not to do, use 1/2” Divinyl cell for the tracks and expect it to hold up with a big guy flying down the line. Custom foil board with only 3 rides :-\
