Thanks for all the advice, he has the acrylic which needs solvent based clear over the top or the solvent based gear?

Do not forget a good anti-UV varnish on top.

And be conscious of the added weight. If you spent extra money on a carbon board to have a light board, you could then make it as heavy as a non-carbon one with paint.
