    Perfect. Will be picking that up tomorrow. Now how about actually getting the matts off. I tried scoring them w a razor and than scraping. Seems to work ok but im wrecking the paint underneath. Guess its not a big deal since it will be covered. Just looking for some way to do it quicker.

    I used thinners or acetone before, gets the mats off, then use the 3M stuff to finish off
    also help with the mats being hot , leave the ski in the sun 4 a while, or heat gun!
