for my first build I initially planned on using a cheap ebay plastic deck (size and weight seemed really nice). However once it arrived it had these ugly and impractical reinforcement bars on the bottom. I removed parts of them and now the board is too flexy to even stand on.
The shape seems to fit the 5" skike pneumatics I ordered quite well so I would love to finally use this deck.
I thought that I should be able to use glass fibre and epoxy to fill the “chambers” and while I am at it make myself an enclosure. However I have never done anything with epoxy and hope that someone might be able to help me.
How much do i need (1kg, 2kg)? What sort of Epoxy is necessary (there are like thousands of different variants)?
I wanted to just pour it into the chambers then sand it and once I have a smooth bottom board put a layer of unidirectional glass fibre sheet there to make it stiff.
If anyone has recommendations for where to buy this stuff cheap in Germany please tell me.
Here is a picture of the board:
