Binding Patchworks!!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, i recently bought some used LOOK Pivot 12's 2004-2005 i beleive. They have a few scraps and dents in them so i was thinking i would do some patchwork. Now i know the part where i want to patch are fibergalss so i'm going to fiberglass them, but i'm really stuck on what to piant them with.

Has anyone ever painted bindings before or knows what will work and what wont? I'm thinking spray paint but will it chip?

You wouldn't be able to ski them unless they are painted? That doesn't really make sense. It's not like the paint is going to alter the performance of them.

Oh come on - everyone knows it's the colour that defines the speed. Didn't we have this discussion in another thread recently about the best Look bindings to go for?

I could ski them, but i'm not going to until i patch them, paint them, and re-bend the brakes to fit my fats. Skiing is always better when your eqiupment is shiny.

No, go 'core. Cover the blemishes with duct tape.

if they are P12s you shouldn't need to bend the brakes there are fat brakes available from look and rossi(while supplies last...)

The width is off by a 1/2cm so its needs to be done. I have 2005-2006 176 Scratch FS's with a waist just a bit too big.

I've skied with my binding duct taped to my ski. Yes I got a few laughs but it worked. Driving home from Vermont with a ripped out binding into an April blizzard. They closed the highway, I got a room, fixed my runner best I could. Got on one of the first chairs next morning at Windham which had closed for the season, but reopened for the event, 30 inches of new snow. The tape held all morning. I rented a board for the afternoon. You do what you gotta do. If you need your bindings to look sharp, paint 'em.
