Help on replacing wear patches
Hello there. I am new to this forum so i hope i am posting correctly.
I am looking for advice on replacing the wear patches on an old Northcraft Rib. The tubes are in good condition, but the wear patches have started to de-laminate on the edges where dive bottles have been pulled across them.
I am confident in glueing the new patches. My issue is how do i remove the old patches? When i try and pull at the parches the top synthetic material comes away leaving the inner cloth reenforcement firmly attached to the tubes. I could remove the loose top layer and then stick the new patches directly to this cloth, but that seems like a bit of a bodge.
Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance
