    Talking First homemade drop thru 46" longboard

    46 X 10 Longboard Made with two glued 1/4 baltic birch plywood. Fiberglass Bottom. Put a little bit of camber in it. Stained it with Red Mahogony. Painted the Bottom black and Painted ACUNA with Stencils on the back. I cut out Acuna on the Grip tape. 76mm Wheels, Bones Reds Bearings, Gullwing Charger Trucks.I just noticed that the one side looks uneven towards the top right,INCLUDING THE WHEEL? It's Not the BOARD its Damn Pitcture on IMAGESHACK! Hit the ZOOM button to make it go away Imageshack - imag0702.jpg Imageshack - imag0703.jpg Imageshack - imag0705.jpg Imageshack - imag0706.jpg Imageshack - imag0709.jpg Imageshack - imag0710.jpg

    Thanx man! I put each side of the board on top of two chairs and put a couple of bricks on top middle of it. Of course it has to be done as soon as you glue the two ply's together

    If those are Blank wheels like they look, they slow down REALLY fast, even with good bearings. Did you get them of amazon or ebay? I suggest ABEC11s, but everyone has their own preferences....

    Yeah I bought a Moose Pintail Longboard a while back and that's what it came with. I just switched them out. I'll Look into Better wheels. These are not horrible though, They'll do for now

    those pintails are deceptively cheap, but amazingly sucktackular. i have SO many scars from mine... However, the Bullyeye bearings are faster than the amphetamine ones on their pricier boards....
