DECK

I am completely obsessed with the appearance of the board, so I decided to create something brand new. I was looking for fresh idea and finally I came across it :smiley: Shape of the deck is is pretty simple but really uncommon what is perfect solution for me :smiley:

I started this little adventure from sticking the printed shape onto the plywood. Next I cut out all shapes using hand router. IMG_20190311_162742

I made a holes for motor phase wires, switch and charging port. I find this a very convenient solution. Next step was add some concave to this board. I glued some additional plywood on the edges of board. When glue was dry I’ve sand them gently to give my deck desired shape.

After that the deck edges were rounded and every detail was carefully finished.

Next step was final sanding, few layers of scarlatt wood stain, sanding, wood stain, sanding, laquer, sanding, laquer etc… Very slow process but it was really worth this time.

After that I cut cover plate from plexi for electronics. I decided to do this because I just like this idea. Nobody from my town or maybe even from the country has anything like that. A very original idea.

Finally the deck was covered by hand cut transparent griptape and it looks like this now.

BATTERY

I choose a battery made on Samsung 25R cells in 10s5p configuration. It gave me 12.5Ah of capacity, but real and safe value is around 11 - 11.5Ah.

Battery was welded using homemade spot welder.

As You can see I decided to make fully flexible battery pack.

BMS connected, wires soldered and everything wrapped in shrink sleeve.

ANTI SPARK

Anti Spark Switch with five mosfets assembled for 10s configuration. Maybe five transistors is too much but… but why not?! :smiley: I connected charging port wires and LCD Voltage Meter directly to Anti Spark PCB. That gave me much simpler wiring inside board. Perfect solution overall 59989055_2333916513532404_7658642951874019328_n

TRUCKS

I hate when something has brand on it so… I decided to definitely remove Evolve logo and paint trucks on primer gray base with shiny clear coat. Pretty nice effect in my opinion.

Love the diy. Great job. Very interested in your diy electronics.

Been a while since I saw a build that had this level of DIY-ness to it! Really beautiful deck, must have taken ages to make! Interesting overall color scheme as well, was there any particular inspiration, or did you just think of it yourself?

Inspiration for shape of this deck was Egiptian scarabeus I think. But basically my own project. Maybe for my dreams :smiley:
