my friend loaned me his old Powell Peralta board to ride and it needs a few repairs before I ride it. I took off the wheels and it's going to get some new ones but it needs some work done to the wood as it's pretty weathered. is there some kind of clear coat I can apply to protect it and what's left of the graphics? also the tail and nose could use some filler. should I just use some run of the mill wood putty? thanks for any help.

my opinion:

hang that on a wall. That board is probably close to 20 years old unless Lance is letting Powell release his classics.
clear coat does not bring back responsiveness off board.

None of the delamination that I see is really fixable. Basically when your board starts looking like that you know it's time for a new one soon.

You can get a new old school shape with griptape anywhere from $50 to $70 depending on what you want and where you buy it.

If you are just doing kickturns in your driveway, this classic should last another 20 years.

If you are planning on dropping in on something, you will notice a world of difference once you replace that old wood.

If you are not that nostalgic, your friend might get some money for this on the internet.
