Got my track and field from the sale in. Real nice shape and 100% flat. Looks like a mixture of the polarizer and Hewitt special

Had some issues with the order and after fixing it they hooked me up with a dvd and some goodies.


please rip the dvd and put it up on youtube. do it for the pals...

cant be found anywhere

Nah and no response when Iíve asked and theyíve never uploaded it. Iím tempted to rip it for my own records though and if I do I can share it with you hotdogs.

please do! also curious if there is a good trick for getting trucks mounted centered and square?

If youíre looking for an alternative method, this worked for me:

Run a thin piece of masking tape down the center of the board and then draw a fine line down the center of the tape.

Also write ďfrontĒ and ďbackĒ on the bottom of the baseplates to avoid future confusion.

Mark 3.5 in. from each end (or whatever you want your nose/tail length to be).

Set the pivot side of the baseplate on the mark, then carefully line up the baseplate straight and centered using the holes and centerline to guide you.

Hold the baseplate down against the tape with a finger and use an awl to poke small divots into the board through the baseplate holes.

Remove tape, drill pilot holes through the divots you made, apply stickers if desired, and mount trucks.

That was so sick.  Even better than I could’ve hoped it would be.  Tunes are insanely good.  Neil is by far my favorite skater ever, he kills it in this.  Really stoked you shared this, THW is the best.

Also if the Sketch Hitchcock guy on here is Skitch - you are a legend!

Anyone drill their board/suregrips for standard skate hardware? What kind of bit(s) are you using?

If I were to do that I would start with a 3/16 drill bit. I've done it before with #8x32 machine screws, the holes in my sure grips were too close to the edge to hog them out for a bigger screw like standard hardware (#10x32)


I weigh 240lb's and use #6 sheet meatal screws nowadays

i believe ive seen a thin piece of metal, used like a baseplate between the trucks and deck to avoid damaging the trucks redrilling for different hardware.(and swapping different hole patterns between trucks)

I took a dremel to my sure grips, carving out some of the baseplate material so a nut could fit flush on the surface


I forget exactly what size hardware I bought but it fit in the existing baseplates without boring it out.

I did a dry fit with the trucks, marked one corner and drilled through the deck, then fixed the truck on with one bolt and drilled the other three holes through the baseplate as a jig. Iím sure screws work fine but I wanted to bolt it on.

Iím gonna get a set of the heated wheel trucks when they ever come out and screw em on with polarizer hardware to my track n field.

Awesome thanks!

Polarizers have been my obsession for the past 2 years. I started out building my own then bought a couple from HW when they were available. A tip for those of you who ride Sure Grip peanut trucks, look for 'Harry's stud' it is a replacement for the traditional kingpin. Right now I am putting together a peanut baseplate / Harry's stud / Sure Grip Avanti magnesium hanger. The Avanti hanger has an adjustable ball pivot that sits in a nylon cup so it might be a really sweet turning truck. Bones soft bushings of course.
