  • How to Clean/Resurface Old Deck?

    I just picked up a super x-ped and the deck is pretty worn out. Is there a good way to clean it up and get some color back into it. Maybe a wood sealer? Stain? And the grind plate is filthy and full of grease. I already scrubbed most of it but theres still a lot on there. Would sanding it down clean it up at all? And after looking at the grind plate it seems like a basic piece of wood, would it be pretty easy to make another one?

    Take a knife (carefully) to the grip and it will come off. Then needs a large belt sander. If doing by hand I would just buy a new deck. Then can use a varnish and stain.

      I would buy a new deck but I want to have the stock look and can't find any stock X-Ped decks anywhere. I found a stock sport deck but it didnt fit around the frame. Im planning to buy new grip tape and figured a light sanding might clean it up but I dont have a belt sander and will be doing everything by hand. Any suggestions for cleaning up the greasy grind plate?

        Hand sanding will not do the trick to your liking. Perhaps have someone cut you a new grind plate. Guy on eBay does custom decks or probably a skate shop would know a local person.

          Ok thanks I'll go ahead and look around, I think I've seen the guy on ebay and I'll call some skate shops. I know home depot cuts wood but im not sure if they just do straight cuts or can cut the shape of the grind plate, I'll call and find out. I appreciate the help.

            You would need someone that first cuts the basic shape and then uses a router to round the edges and get the final shape.

              It definitely could be refinished, but I don't know how The new decks are cool too but I miss the classic wood decks with this logo design!
