Alright, so might as well make a thread because I’m gonna need a lot of help with this lol. All my parts are in, just waiting on the BMS and looking to get fuses, today I decided to test fit everything to make sure it fits properly. I’ve had these caliber II trucks lying around for a few years, never used them so why not use them for this build. Let’s get this shit started!
Looks like it’ll be a nice light and simple board.
Looking good. You excited? Also, show us the custom deck you made.
Hell yea! So since this build will probably be the biggest one yet I wanted to go all out. I ordered veneer the same time I ordered the parts and once all that came in, I got to work. I know this board is gonna be fast so I decided “What will make a person feel like their surfing?” Then it hit me. Pintail has a surf board like shape, ironically my piece of shit Menards brand jigsaw broke so I went out and got a Skil jigsaw, worked like a charm, after I vacuumed the veneer together, i shaped it, sanded it smoothly, rounded the edges and I came out with this
I sketched out a few graphic designs but those are on my iPad, I’ll add them on later. Don’t know which to choose so I’ll leave that up to you guys, my opinion their all creative in their own ways. Other then that, I’m gonna be practicing soldering all tho my joints have gotten drastically better then the first time. Looking at fuses and possibly a name for the board when it’s complete
I really like No 1.
Looks futuristic and has references to electricity.
Good choice, would match the criteria of the electric side of the board haha
Little update: drilled in the screws for the gearing and for my first time ever doing that, came out even and straight first try
Number 1 all the way.
Looking good, are those 12mm pulleys?
Go here and just post a picture like I have in step 1. I will tell you the rest.
