Step 1:

Step 2: Sawing Off Wheel Base Nubs

After the wheels are taken off saw of the knives that were holding them. Afterwards sand down to be flush with everything else

Step 3: Adding Grip Tape and Trucks

Afterwards attach grip tape to the top of the deck. Then see where the trucks will go best, I put mine 2.5 inches away from the tip of the nose and the bottom trucks 3 inches away from the back of the deck. While drilling use the trucks as a guide and make sure they’re straight

Step 4: Adjusting and Tuning

I adjusted the trucks to be super responsive so it felt like a surfboard. And a warning is that this feels like a super thin board it bends very easily
