Pina Colada song

I was tired of my lady, we’d been together too long, like a worn out recording of a favorite song…

So what do you do when you have no legitimate reason to build anything new, but you’re bored and want to work on skateboards? You get with a couple friends and have a face-lift party

We decided to strip our decks and try to do the fabric and frit thing to breath some new life in our shit and ended up making a few little changes to other details that came out pretty good (in my opinion).

Anyways, mostly just wanted an excuse to post pics and thank @glyphiks and @rosco for the awesome write ups on the process- if anyone is interested in giving this a shot, I can’t recommend these threads enough:

So here’s how it went

One other pretty cool thing about that Evo it that he designed the skin to match his MOTHER FUCKING OG METROBOARD FROM OVER A DECADE AGO!!!

The orange rails on the century are banging. Really brings that one together. Super stoked that you made it happen!

One of the board owners and contributors in this project here, JPNW left out a cool pice of background on this I think. The origin came from talks about a deck swap to get his favorite deck back. He ordered a custom century that he loved in every way except the color finish and built this-


Eventually the colors not matching bugged him enough that he sold me the deck to try a new build with a landyachtz evo (spoiler alert: my favorite deck). I made this board-

Now JPNW builds his dream board and loves everything about it… except the deck.

So he asks me if I’d be willing to swap decks, and as much as I adore the century board the evo will always be my favorite. That agreement led to all the talks of reskinning/painting/lip sticking you see today.

Hope that all made sense, been celebrating a successful week!

How did you paint the rails? Can’t get over how good it looks

Thanks man!

I tried maybe 3 or 4 paints to find a good match, ended up using a rustoleum semi gloss spray paint and covering it in matte clear coat, it ended up being a happy medium between the design on the footbed and the anodized trucks and gear drives
