Re: Soft Sole Replacement

Sanded the sole with 60 grit, took off the lumps and bumps, cut off the loose fibers and generally smoothed things out...

Then a fairing coat of epoxy over all... I added a little white colorant to the epoxy to be able to see the new coat and if the non skid gets scratched it'll still show white undeneath...went on pretty smooth for a floor, almost self leveling...

Went down fairly smooth, will sand one more time and maybe some touch up fairing...ater that tape it off and roll out the KiwiGrip non skid...

(Still need to paint the bilge blinding white...)
