Please do post updates on your build. Would love to see your process/progress.

Are those foam sheets in the photo you posted above?

Yes. What I am doing with it is shaping the rigged foam insulation to a 3rd of the intended thickness for the deck. After I am done shaping all 4( because I will screw up on one.) I turn the foam in to aluminium through magic. I'm just kidding. I bury the foam in sand vertically and pour molten aluminium in to the sand volcano funnel I construct burning away the foam and replacing it with aluminium. I sand the aluminium layers smooth, bend them to the right shape and then TIG weld the layers together. Pretty darn cool process right. Can't wait to ride. Joe

You should document the process with photos and videos, I think I speak for many when I say we'd definitely like to see how this goes! Good luck!

Can you tell me how to upload videos then? That is the only thing holding me back.

There's this little website that should let you upload them:

At this point, I don't know if you're trolling me or if I'm trolling you!

I have uploaded videos to Youtube and Vimeo. Fairly simple. Don't know if it has changed but videos uploaded to Vimeo seem to have better resolution.

Your aluminum molding process sounds interesting. Not quite sure I understand the process though.

If you can't post video, picture sequences work well enough.
