Default modding my new axis long boards

on an impulse buy yesterday i bought some axis al-2 's and i gotta say i LOVE these things! great speed ,power ,control, just awesome pedals, but i have one problem with them. i play with socks and thats not going to change, i like to feel the pedal. the logos are very sharp and destroyed a pair of socks in one jam session and threatened to cut into my feet.

so me and the band members were throwing around ideas of how to fix this , put tape over the logo? nope too much sticky crap to deal with. sand down all sharp edges? no i don't want to weaken the structure of the pedals in anyway shape or form. possibly fill in the logo's with an epoxy or resin? hey now there's an idea! but i need suggestions on the proper compound to use, and ive already told them " no im not using silicon or caulking on it"

any ideas?

I had this problem at one time. You can look around for a piece of heavy duty rubber mat, like car mat but obviously it must be smooth. You can stick this to the pedal using contact adhesive, so it can be scraped off again. This should feel pretty good, your socks grip the rubber and it's also warmer on your toes!
I found I can get a good feel in basketball boots now, with ultra thin soles. Same idea.

hey thats a good idea, i was also thinking a plexiglass or lexan cover, they would be nice and slippery too.

I wouldn't go plexi or lexan, extremely sharp edges when cut!

Take it to a body shop and have them fill it.

You should be able to use clear epoxy and fill them in without changing the look of the pedal. Just mix the epoxy in small batches as I'd bet it'll take some time to fill in. The logos neatly. 24 hour epoxy might be easier to work with in that sense, otherwise get 20 min, not 5 min. And see about disconnecting the pedal linkage, or else propping it up so the foot board is level.

There are resins that you can mix to fill these gaps in. I would look into those.
