The next step was to layout the placement for the trucks (axles), then drill. With all cutting, drilling and staining complete, I sprayed 3 coats of clear over the entire deck, wet-sanding between coats, then mounted the trucks, bearings and wheels. I applied griptape to the top, then used another vinyl stencil to trace and cut out the “S” in the tape. With the deck complete, I took pictures, then delivered the longboard to it’s college-bound recipient, as he was shopping for one to use as on- and off-campus transportation.
