Last season while was taking a trip to Tremblant in Quebec my ski tip delaminated while i was there, used duct tape for while i was there then jerry rigged the fuck out of it when i got home. Used some tiny strips of brass, a rivet gun and some jb weld to put the tip back together. 10/10 would ski on it again
I recently used contact cement to glue my footbed into place. If anyone is familiar with boot doctor footbeds (fully custom molded), you'll know that they are kind of soft and flimsy compared to Sidas. I've apparently taken one too many backseat landings and my footbed was migrating forwards inside the liner, to the point that it had actually started to curl up in the front and was causing me toe pain. So I decided why not just glue that sucker in there? Problem solved.
I also re-flattened the forefoot (which was stuck curled up) with a flat iron hair straightener. Worked surprisingly well. A hair dryer is also a useful tool for getting contact cement to set quickly. Who knew hair styling tools could be so useful for solving boot problems.
I have to say having my footbed glued in place is awesome. I know you're supposed to heat mold your insole in there so it beds in and, in theory, stays in place. But as bootfitters around here keep saying, your footbed is the foundation of a good bootfit. So why wouldn't you want that thing in there as solidly as possible? I swear I'm getting better responsiveness in my boots now.
Snapped my tail once...hammered a nail through the tail, tied a string around it, then tied the other end of the string to my heel piece to pull the tail back up.
Used to have a picture, it was janky.
bitches love it when they can see my dick bulging against my outerwear. they are all like "is that a sandwhich for later?" and im all like "no, that is my massive penis sandwiched between the tight fabric of my pants and my inner thigh" - pomme-de-terre
The same thing that happens to you happend to my brother. We put small bolts in and they were good as new. Also my old snow pants ripped all the way to the crotch. I sewed them up. Took forever but it was a good fix
