Gilly!
I got my stuff today, yes the hole is extremely small but after a bit of hard work I got them on my ytrucks, yes my thumbs and index fingers hurt like hell, but it's not impossible to tget hem on ytrucks, you have to definitely make the hole bigger, but as it's a good material I was abe to strech it enough to put it on the kingpin happy
the bushing make all typed of heelflips much easier shocked
tks for the stuff gilly!
edit: sorry but no pic of the bushing set up coz my camera sucks, if I can take a pic I'll post it =S

Gilly, before you make the hole, how long do you leave the bushings for? shocked

I have a theory, the material shrinks, so let it shrink BEFORE you drill the holes?
The material would shrink as much as possible, so the hole shouldn't shrink if you drill it afterwards?

obviously i can hand drill them just twisting the drill bit.. but its very time consuming and makes the finished product look cheep

i want perfection and perfection is only what ill accept...

Yeah, to get a clean hole in plastic you need a high speed shocked

And I see now!

How about leaving them in the mold for longer until it shrinks around the hole in the mold?
