New board for 2021, on a subsonic gt40 platform. Ordered the downhill flex + a layer of carbon on the top and bottom tinted with green. Started off by glass fritting the board with polyurethane:
Then I gave the eboosted enclosure my personal touch. Started smoothing it out by using a base coat and then sanding, then I sprayed black:
Then sanded lightly and masked off the decals I wanted courtesy of @Kaydo
followed by a typical candy paint process:
Some heavy streaks in the candy but overall turned out great, streaks are only visible when it’s not under direct light.
Woah… i love the paint on the enclosure!
Going for numies for this one? Wouldn’t dare scratch that enclosure. Beautiful work!
Is going to be on widened 6 inch pneumatics
Looks great, I swear the title Ronin had me looking for trucks
I went back and darkened the enclosure to match it to the deck a bit more. (Also corrected the streaks a bit)
Holy shit that looks nice af

What do the Asian characters say?
It’s Japanese, says Bushido
Its also same meaning in Chinese
That’s real good looking board
I mean the term/concept is Japanese
Getting things ready. There’s so much space in here
I absolute love and hate beautiful builds, the first scuff is painful
Haha yeah I’m not looking forward to that. I’m going to keep the height functional, not going for ultraboard status this time around
But your avatar/profile picture says ultra instinct?
I’m going to make an ultra version for racing
It’s slightly better to connect the balance wires to the negative sides. Is it possible to slip some fishpaper under just those balance wires on the right half in the photo?
I didn’t build the battery but me and @Kaydo know about it. It’s all hot glued in place so there’s not much room for rubbing but since it’s clear I’ll keep an eye on it, next time will implement that
Edit: there is kapton tape there
How did I miss this? Build looks sick!
How did you paint the kanji – with a stencil, or by hand?
