My plates-your advice
: I finally thought I had things figured out and found a place that was going to drill holes in my grind bar so that I could adjust it. I took my skates apart today and it will not work. I ended up just taking off the grind bars completely. I am providing before and after pictures. Does anyone see anything wrong with me just skating on my plates? I can't believe how little space there is between the trucks. I welcome all suggestions, just remember I can not build shit.

: Am I the only vert skater out there that uses rollerskate plates?

Easy solution. Your plates are flat on the sides. If you can get someone to drill 4 holes through the metal. Drill them between the trucks and lettering in the center, for 4 holes. Make sliders like I did, a C shaped with the begiining and end of the C attached to the holes by bolts. The back of the C will come down in a V shaped, 1/2 inch and the ends meet in the center of your wheels. Need diagrams? ;-D
