    Those with modded stock rideplates please post some pics!

    I am going to be modifying my stock ride plate like the Riva rideplate.

    If you have done this can you please post pics and give some tips and suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Btw, those pics are courtesy of Dhoad's ski that is for sale.

    Yeah BigDaddy, that's exactly what I'm looking for. Is that your own, if so any tips on how to do this?

    Tks

    Bolt that thing down to something flat and true, otherwise it will twist when you cut it and reweld it...
