2 Steps Foward / 5 Steps Back

Ok, The tape I used to bond the skins did'nt hold as good as I needed.
So I pulled it apart and I'm currently redoing my skins.
And now it will not have the Aluminum showing through the cracks.
Back to specs for me.
The Gorilla glue works great and cleanup is nothing.
I'll post pics as soon as I get it repainted.

Final Product

This is what you'll wind up with.
The 3- 1/8 screws will have to be drilled all the way through the wheels and gear assy.
The way I did it was:
When you set the wheel and gear on the axel,
You can see the factory holes. Drill through these and they'll be inline.

Next Step

Heres the Assy. going together.
Make sure you shim the entire Assy.
Or the bearings will come out of the wheels.

Wheel Assy.

Heres the parts I got from the Skate Shop.
The shims will be different lengths, So you'll have to adjust them yourself.
The 5/16 bolt is the axel.
The 3- bolts go through the wheels.
They're 1/8 x 4 toggle bolt screws.
And various shims.
