step 1!!! i use thick ca glue. apply it with a g-tip or fold a paper towel into a sharp point. then apply evenly.

step 2!!! after the section has been covered rub a cotton ball over it. do this over and over.

cotton and ca acts like a plastic or fiber glass.

step 3!!! then get 1 thousand grit or 15 hundred grit sand papar. and use water. (wet sand). evenly and don't apply massive pressure.

doing this will get your edges like glass.


but the point is to seal the edges of the fiber deck. and not to see your beatiful face in the edge =]! lol

Ok so my hand isn't as steady as it used to be and got some white cloudiness on the bottom.

How do you guys eliminate the white cloudiness afterwards?

You wont get rid of the cloudyness/whiteness im afraid, as the glue has crystalized, by this I mean, the glue has activated to quickly and therefor adhesion would have been lost between the CA and the edge of your chassis. The only way to remove this cloudyness/whiteness, is to sand it back beyond the point where its gone white, and re-apply more CA
If I can get some close up pics, I will post them on here to show you the finish I get with CA, as I work with it within my trade everyday, so know exactly how you should apply CA
Cheers Malc
