Hay guys just found a random tdlb around the house still in its box lol cheers

So I have been reshaping the trucks slowly kinds not best but okish first job made abit of mess around the place with files lol. but good fun and learning curve for next go!!! afro my question is though I wanted to try and Screw some black AK axels into the hangers replaceing the threaded ones? Wanted to know if its been tryed and done beforehand and with any info maby?

Also I saw a thread saying instead of grinding down the tdlb base plate king pins swap to some china base plates so I tryed that but I cant seem to run a top bushing only bottom fits without been really tight and of course I need lose as all hell lol

Any positive feedback and information would be great thanks!  very happy

Heard it's possible but just don't do it. Someone on here tried it and it's not worth the effort. Something about having to carefully drill out the axle hole and then trying to glue the new axles in with JB weld or something like that. Also if you were to attempt it, it would leave the hangers weaker and the axles would break off easier.

Well I finally got around to finishing of shaping the tdlbs.

Im quite impressed with the outcome for a first attempt, im using some werid UFO shaped washers as wheel spacers witch I think also looks cool lol very happy

They feel alot better then normal chinas in my opinion helps me with pop because there raised abit more afro
