save the object with the new surfaces and then close and reload the object or close and reopen the program

Do as vonbon has written. Hint: make sure the surface you want deleted is NOT applied to any part of the object before saving.

Do as they said.

As long as you highlight all the polygons that have the surface you want to delete and rename the surface, when you save the object Lightwave deletes the surface that has been covered over. You won't see that surface anymore if you close and reopen the object, or Lightwave.
