    Wasnt sure if this would fit here, hope it does, if not, LMK where to move it to, thanks!

    A few weeks ago a friend and I were working on RC cars at his house, he mentioned in passing wishing we had something to jump with. Later that week I found a pair of skateboard ramps on trash day. They were pretty beat up and warped, but I remembered what my friend had said and ispiration hit me.

    I took them home and took the heat gun to them, got them back in shape and painted them. Since we're both pretty big into Transformers the paint scheme was obvious. I spray painted the chrome stripes, taped off then red and purple. I printed the logos onto regular sticker paper, applied, cut out the edges, and sprayed black. Then re-applied the edges, and cut out the rest of the logos and sprayed chrome and red or purple respectively to create a fade. Finished off with a clear coat. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.

    We will each keep one at our respective house so we will always have something to jump no matter whose house we're at...

    One man's trash and all that. I hope the kids that threw them away never walk by the house when we're out playing with our RC cars! :lol :

    Hell man I would've done the same thing, but I doubt they would have turned out as well. Good job, and nice find; those ramps can be expensive.
