I can’t stand spending time on something that I want to be riding/driving. I have zero f@%ks to give when it comes to making things look good… If its cheap quick to get going and does the business and all about it.
I’d much rather be riding it than building it. I’d rather make something that suits me than have it look good.
I want to see if others share the same way of thinking.
Send forth your ugly build pics and let us know what you like about it.
The caveat for this is that when I am being paid to work on something I definitely strive for excellence. But this fun shed time…who cares?
I’ve got to say I am the complete opposite of this. If something is not right and I mean a teeny tiny bit wrong I can’t sleep until its fixed. Saying that though I do cut massive corners to prove a concept and have been flying down the road with bits of duct tape and roof rack straps holding things together. The finished product though…
I wouldn’t say they’re unsafe. No more so than anything else. DIY board is never going to snap. And vesc is generic motors are good quality connections done right etc. Sometimes I even check the tyre pressure.
That’s the first thread where I feel like my board fits. I used to have a Tupperware “enclosure” and now I am using plywood box screwed to the deck not sure if it’s an upgrade but it works fine. I put it together in a hurry and because it is holding fine without issues so far I have not changed it since. I will probably do a cleaner build for the next one, I have almost everything to make a vacuum formed enclosure, I just haven’t found a large enough oven on the sidewalk yet.
