Tony, if I could get them to drill the deck old school, I would be all over that.  Just not too keen on drilling it myself and having the extra holes.

Drilling the deck would be fairly easy and trucks would cover the extra holes underneath. Can’t remember if they punched the grip but if not the extra holes would also be covered. Worse case scenario you could just cut a new piece of grip tape.

I actually have one of the first run decks that they produced with the grip cut incorrectly, which showed the colour fade the wrong way. I had it in mind that I would completely re-do the grip also adjusting the size of the Alva lettering to make it much closer to the original. Just never quite got round to doing it. Might get there one of these days once I’ve scored a decent mix colour set of flat backs. I’ve got two colours already just casually looking for an odd wheel to reach the mix set.
