I got the kid this week and did a little more work last night. Counter sinking the holes for the pivot hooks is a bit of a pain in the ass at first. Works best when you take it slow and let the ring build up and then just cut it away with an X-acto knife.

Looks pretty slick. Are you gonna bring it to Jay? Ive got a nice little BC trip that a friend showed me that can be done prettty easy. We could put in an afternoon and still get in 3 or 4 laps of the hill after riding the resort for the AM. Thats what they tell me anyway. I should be trying it out on Saturday afternoon.

Looks good cifex. I am surprised you mounted the bindind plates so forward, but I remember you said you change your binding angles from time to time. You are ready to earn your pow turns. Noble indeed. FYI make sure you counter sink those well so the wax you apply does not have a propensity to get torn out when sliding. ( like mine)

Did you buy the tractor skin too?

The binding plates aren't actually mounted yet, though 15 / 30 is my usual stance so that is what I'll prob go with.
