What's Your Latest Project?
« on: February 07, 2012, 05:09:53 PM »
i figure this could be an entertaining thread, the idea is to post up your current or even past projects/experiments relating to cars or not. looking for homemade stuff, cool ideas and such, or just random funny things. pictures should be mandatory, noone wants to know "what you did," without proof!  ;)

i really enjoy tinkering with skateboard stuff, so i'll start it off with what i did this week.

Lowrider Skateboard ::)

got the idea from the funny picture thread and i had to have one myself, just for kicks. (sorry, some are cell pics)

so i found a clearance skateboard at work for $15, and then headed to lowe's for extended hardware. ended up getting some 4" machine screws with nuts.


then i inversed the trucks or whatever and made markings of where to cut


drilled holes to make sawing easier


then chopped it up!


after mounting the trucks on top, i think it's fuckin sweet haha, just need bigger wheels cause my weight flexes the board too much to roll, but it does roll by itself!


favorite picture ;D

You guys should respect everyone's decision because at the end it's their cars and should be free to do whatever they desire to do with it and should not jump on somebody else and call whatever they do retarded just because you dont agree with it, being HELLAFLUSH OR GOING FAST AND ALL THE 4X4 STATUS THINGY  its a personal preference so STOP HATIN!!!!!

I like the skateboard. If I had another complete deck I'd build one. And Alex that's a pretty cool idea.
