That's a good question SD.. It's something I had trouble with in the past and haven't yet looked into it. I had read somewhere out there on the interwebs that you need to be careful to match the repair materials with the type of board. I had a really old longboard that was dinged up pretty badly. I mixed up some West and as soon as the West touched the foam in the board it began to bubble up really bad. It looked as if the epoxy was boiling. I don't ride that board too much so I tabled the repair for another day and it's been sitting ever since.
I would keep in mind that the hardener for West has a yellow tint to it. If you want the board to stay pretty you should look for a clear hardener to bring along. This one would look pretty bad with a big yellow patch on it.
My complete refit is taking completely too long!
