I'll post up some stuff I've made recently.. let me know whatcha think!
Yeah, I shaped almost 90% of those cars by hand. I used some scrap 16GA steel laying around the shop and made some small dies to beat on. Once I get the shape im looking for, then I move it down to a smaller die and beat on it some more till I get the shape all cleaned up. it takes some time but it looks pretty cool once their done.Luugo86 said:thats some pretty cool stuff man... do you shape all of the bigger pieces by hand or repurpose those as well?
Thanks, funny thing is, I've never skateboarded in my life.. Used to paint them in school for skateshops to pay the bills and now that im out of college and have somewhat grown up, im left with all the originals. I'll post up some more once Im home.Ribo said:Table's even better with a story behind it
If I was still a skater that deck would be mine!
Good work here fella.
