Sweet ride! I believe Mini rib bones fit perfect on a lot of the BDS decks..... right between the wells.

Thanks David.
I had to cut those rails, they were 14 1/2". A little tricky to shape the end. Don't think there are any to buy in the right length, 10"-12". Correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks Man. I am throwing everything back on the way it was in the first pick, except the nose and tail bone will be black. I am adding black mini rib bones also.

ElJimmy ... why I buy a limited?  You made that standard production killer.  Nice work!  Bro ... talk to me!  How did you do that masking tape?  Never seen anything like that & it works!

Well, I got everything at Michaels. The film to cover the graphic is Frisket airbrushing film. It's like a sticker that you lay down and cut (lightly) with a x-acto blade. As for the wells and sides I use electrical tape because it stretches and is easy to curve. I picked up 1 can of Testor transparent red model paint and a Testor clear lacquer spray, went to town with the red and let it dry. Peeled everything off and clear coated it. Tricky part is keeping the fade even.

That looks great! You have just the right amount of fading on it to make the graphics pop. Are you going to ride it?

Have considered surgery as a profession? Nerves of Steel.
