Hey guys. I have a vanguard and I accidentally sanded the fiberglass from the top of the deck off when I was routing my wires. Now the deck is way too flexible, it’s dangerous. I was wondering if there’s any way to add more fiberglass or carbon fiber to the top of the deck under the grip tape?
If so, how would I do it and what would I need to buy?
Just find a fibreglass supplier local to you you will need a meter of 200gsm cloth, and a 500ml bottle of resin with slow gardener. And a cheap brush or two. That should get you enough for 4 or 5 layers
Subsonic sent me these to select from when they were building my deck.
I am sure they wouldn’t mind me sharing them.
They picture a 177 lb rider on two decks of the Century 40 I was purchasing. The one on blocks is 8 plies maple with no fiberglass. The one on wheels is 7 plies maple with two plies glass. The glass plies are one ply in from the outside (m, FG, m, m, m, m, m, FG, m).
I have the same @eBoosted enclosure. I will try a little experiment today to see if there is a big stiffness difference from bolting it to the deck. I considered making a segmented enclosure so it is an interesting question. The slightly wider contact point and the addition of the enclosure have opposite effects on the stiffness so they will cancel each other to some extent.
