Re: Sanding Foil for stability

UV does harm the foil some what, does not cure epoxy unless it is sun cure epoxy but you wouldn't want to make a foil out of it.

Re: Mike's Lab foils

Re: Broken Foil - Need advice

better off to pull the inserts out all together.. most like will never lock in after the repair and just cross bolt it when finished. also threads will be screwed after a impact like that.
