Question: applying a scuff to a mongoose mmi3. Should I cover the whole of the front sticker or should I cut it shorter like a standard bat?

I'd say whole bat face as the whole face will be used and help protect the stickers

Thanks, that's what I thought, I was just concerned it may look a bit weird.

Bought these off here.





One had very minor surface cracks which were easily repaired. The other had slightly more extensive delamination. After a bit of surgery it is not all glued and solid.







All completed and stickered. I will scuff the one on the left but leave the one on the right in case I need access to glue down any further delamination.

Top work on those @Gurujames
Always find trying to get all the delam a challenge as can sometimes take several glueing sessions

A combination of needles, syringes, Stanley knives and butter knives did the trick. The delamination was in a fairly localised area so I was able to get to it in one go. However, it may well spread, that's why I won't put a scuff sheet on.

Piggy banking onto this post again - apologies.

How bad is feathering of the toe and also some small (compress maybe) cracks near the toe?

Can get picture when I am home from work later if it helps!

Feathering isn't bad at all. Happened to my main bat 4 years ago but some watery super glue down there and never had an issue since
