Arrrg it's me Plank! Another one for the quiver, finally got it set-up!

Wife did the sweet custom anchor on the grip. I scanned the black & white BDA crow sticker, then printed onto transparent sticker paper so the green would show through; just thought the pirate needed an old crow.

Ace 66's, Khiro 1/4 soft risers, and a nice used set of JuJu mini dubs from OldKook, thanks Frank. Sk8kings tail guard, and two generic nose guards dyed black and secured with wood screws. I have a set of Powell ribs, but I might pick up a 2nd set and stack'em, so I can put them close to the sides. The Ace's were a little to narrow with the minis, so I added 1/8 spacers on each wheel to give me a little more width. Doesn't leave much room for the nut, so I will have to put some "lock-nut" on them, or trad'em off for a set of full sized Dubs. I haven't taken it out for a spin yet, but I stood on it to see how the trucks feel, and everyone is right about the Ace's having a tight turn geometry. Even with the KP nut tightened, I can lean the board all the way to the wheels, and I like to lean. I will probably pull the 1/4 risers off and toss on some 1/2 inch to account for the extra lean.

Can't wait to get this one into the park and see how she does, and walk the plank!

Nice set-up there. [thumb]

Try some Crooks OG 14.5 rails instead of stacking Powells. They are 1/2" by 1/2" and you can set them nicely to the edge of the board even with a deep concave.

Nice setup.  Nice job with the sticker.

Need 10" trucks with the Mini Dubs.  Don't know why Ace doesn't make 10" trucks.  They need to.  You'll definitely need more riser if you go to regular Dubcons.  I like wedge in front on my 18" wb boards.

Presto Changeo - green Minis to orange Dubs, Tada! Thanks SWSURFER for the trade on the Dubs, and CCKEN for picking up the Minis.

Plank, Ace 66's, 1/2 inch risers, Dubs, and no wheel bite.... as U2 would say "It's a beautiful day"!

Hey guys, can you enlighten me on this beauty?  Haven't been able to find out much of anything.  Plenty on the angry pig but not this graphic and back story.
