Introduction: 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

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

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

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!!!

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

author
Xander da gr8 made it! (author)Xander da gr82008-09-05

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.
