    Question Filling in the Landyatchz switchblade drop -thru cuttout

    So i've decided to top-mount my landy switchblade and its 10000x more awesome, but the OCD in me can't stand to look at the holes that are now directly above my trucks. If anyone can think of anything to either fill them in or cover them up it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Dud...i was going to fill my a4 yesterday haha wierd. Get wood epoxy filler (10 bucks at ace) and put wax paper under the hole, fill with epoxy, grip over it. I'm still debating doing this, since it woud be permanent, but it would really strengthen the neck I think.

    well yea i was going to cover them up with grip-tape afterwards but what would i use to actually fill them in so they'res not like this weird depression under the grip-tape.

    you should just cut out a piece of wood the shape of the drop through hole, then epoxy a thin metal sheet to bottom of it thats the shape of a riser. then drill holes through it for the hardware to go through, and stick it on between the deck and the trucks, with the wood filling the hole. then put grip tape over the block, so its removable, but still has grip.

    essentially it would be a thin metal riser with a wood block in the shape of the cutout attached on top. good luck

    This is what i came up with for mine. Its just some hard plastic with grip tape on it bolted to the top of the board. Worked out pretty well

    You can use the roger bros drop through cover. Its basically a metal plate to cover up the holes on a dropthrough when you top mount it

    ^^ The drop through plates.
    Best way to do it as it will help distribute some of the torque that bolts will create on the gap in the neck.
