Introduction: Tech Deck Grind Rail

Picture of Tech Deck Grind Rail

This instructable will show you how to make a simple tech deck grind rail with things just laying around the house!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

You will need...
1 A tech deck (obviously)
2 a coat hanger
3 pliers(optional)
4 tape
5 something that will cut the coat hanger (I used one of those tools made especially for fences)

Step 2: Cutting

Picture of Cutting

The best way to cut your coat hanger is to cut just the bottom out so you have a straight line of it.

Step 3: Bending

Picture of Bending

This gets hard to explain... First bend your straight line of coat hanger into a squard off U shape. Then you want to bend the sides of the U forward, parallel to the ground. This will be waht you tape to the ground. The pictures will help a little.

Step 4: You're Done!!

That's it! One thing to make it look more authentic is to scrape off the outside white paint and make it look silver and metallic! Thanks for reading and please leave a comment!!!

hi did u paint it silver or not

Xander da gr8 (author)gggf2009-06-10

i just scraped the white off of the outside of the rail. There is no need to paint but it should work just as well.

it doesn't suck (jeff..... >:( haha) but it would do better on some cardboard and use superglue not tape. also more suport so it doesn't bend or something

Xander da gr8 (author)casey321b2008-09-05

I tried superglue, it didn't work... I want it to be portable. Also, if you could help me out with the support... I cant figure out what to use.
