: WOW! Did someone make that plate for you, weld it together? I LOVE your grind plates!! Do you bolt in all 4 holes of each truck into your boots or 2 of each? I guess I will cut a rectangle, line them up and push to the edges, drill holes but thats one nice grind set up! Good job!!! Thanks for sharing! :-D

Thanx for the feedback,I cut them out of box section aluminium,like a tube only square.I used a cheap electric jigsaw and took my time(less than an hour).
Mid trackers are a good option for you if your small,they are Brian Wainrights choice of truck so you cant argue with the performance. The grind kings are a bit wider but lighter and you can't use rollergirls grind plates on them unless you change the king pins which would be a bit silly as they are the best king pins in the business.
I recon my plates are probably the easiest (and cheapest) to make as they are thin but strong because of there profile,also the base plate of your truck fits perfectly in to the chanel of the plate so they end up tracking perfectly straight and you can set your rails at any height,just cut the sides to the desired height.

cheers joe
