Both of those are sweet Mark!  Those powder coated Trackers look nice as well.  [thumb]  I put a set of those on the recent Flying Aces reissue.

It would be nice if just once....ONCE...you actually surprised me and posted something worth a shit.  Pickle posts basically a question about the placement of the wheel wells, along with a compliment about the deck. We have all kinds of good stuff here, but that's not really the point, which as always, you fucking miss.

I.M.H.O. Wes has the best wheel wells in the business! Mike Hess banned me from all his Facebook pages, because I told him his wheel wells suck and he couldn't explain to me how they would work. Fuck that guy! [tounge2] but yea, that Taperkick looks good.! it's just gonna have wheel bite outside the well.

OK.. Sorry I didn't respond yesterday.

First off.. Yes it is 3 layers, and as far as the wheel wells..

Since I do not know who made this deck (I have an email in to the Ebay seller)
I'll have to wait for a true answer back if he knows.

Maybe the craftsmen that make these types of decks either cut these
wheel wells to distinguish the repo's from the real deal really quickly
by just the wheel well cut and size??????

Or the wheel wells are cut before the drilling of the mounting holes
and sometimes they're off a little???  Or they don't really care if you
plan on riding the deck or not... Who knows..

This one is not as nice as Mike Hess models. The graphics are all tape
(and that was not in the description on Ebay) but I didn't pay the same
price as the Hess Models either, so I kinda knew before it got here that
it was not going to an exact replica.

I wish I had the talent and the time to make my own repo's. I'll never
be able to afford the real deal and since I use most of the deck for studio
work, I don't plan on riding them, but it sure would be nice to see someone
start to reproduce these SIMS decks like ALVA is doing. And then if we could get
Kryptonics to re-run the Alba decks and Santa Cruz to put out the Stinger and
Kanoa to put out the Bobby Valdez Tri-Beam..

  Oh and let's not forget Dogtown to put out the Tri Plane and Shogo also..

In a perfect world....
