Roughly a year ago I started this thread. It was (and still is) a nice side project for me. The first build was interesting and was my introduction to this world of DIY longboards. This forum is packed with knowledge and answered all of my questions as I went along, and I’m grateful for this.
On the original thread, a reply by @gee got my interest. Why not put the batteries inside the carbon tubes? It was an interesting idea, and I even discussed it with @banjaxxed over dm. Eventually I started working on it.
And just recently it was finished:
Those who follow me on Instagram @dosimplecarbon saw the entire process in pictures. The outcome is really cool, it weights just under 6.7kg, no enclosure and no batteries in sight.

Overall it was a fun project, the board is super clean and stiff, and you can even lift it up from the middle tube!
I want to thank everyone who encouraged me through this build, let’s see what we can build in the future, Dani
