Finally did it!
thanx. I decided to cut the toe stopper area off the plate, taking off another 0.5 ounce. I'm gonna try these wheels and bearings or put on the ones I'm riding now. These are literally CRAP bearings ;- )
yep, drilled holes to mount my small heels, boots are a size 5, on sale for $30+10 ship. yep, pump out after bailing in bowls. the LA crew really use their toestoppers well to get out, i still haven't master that move yet.

: Oh wow Irene, you did an awesome job!! Mine weigh an ounce or so more lol. And you have wider hangers, really good job.
: : So why crap bearings? I would think the swiss ones you had would be faster. I need faster bearings. I think I will try the Missiles. Mine are crap literally lol.
: And your baseplates. Did you drill a hole between them so you could attach them to the heel? With mine, if my kingpin ever breaks, if I cant get plastic ones it will be hard. I love my trucks and know I cant go wider cause I would seriously lock wheels if I did. My plates and trucks will probably not change til I die. I might move the center of my sliders closer to the front. Thats it for changes for me for my skates I think. I'm pretty darn happy with mine.
: : So when you bail in a bowl, do you pump out too? I dont like the toe stops. They get in the way on the humpty-humps.
