    Of course, we could always ply around with the idea.
    And mix it up a bit..

    Do you know, you cannot buy DOTS of grip tape...
    So in true ShackTune fashion..
    I made a 1 1/4" punch..
    Take a carbon steel tube with a I/d of 1 1/4" ..
    Machine a sharp tip on the end....
    Add a hammer and a block of teak wood..
    Instant DOTS of grip tape.

    Something for the weekend.
    With the chassis extended by 3 inches..
    It meant the board was longer...
    With a longer board, you could squeeze another letter in......

    I like seeing pictures of alternate ideas, it is a method I often employ to help me visualize what something wood look like before committing to a particular design. So keep the pictures coming

    Very nice deck. Your woodwork is impressive just as is your machining ideas. Since you have chosen to basically go with the stock shaped deck and grip tape motif.... the straight lines look better than the dots, IMHO. I myself prefer a boat deck look and to forgo griptape with grout lines routed into the deck which keep me firmly planted on the deck even if it gets wet.

    The SKOPED tape was hand drawn using fragments from the GOPED tape..
    Working in mirror on the back of the tape, started with OPED..
    Then added a hand drawn K ... Then using lines, corners and curves from the original to finesse the design.
    Then using my eyes to weed out inconsistencies and flaws in the flow of the letters.
    The S was the hardest bit... it took about 3 hours to get right.
    I kept sticking white masking tape over and starting again..
    The good news is....... Once you have an Original.. You can make loads more by drawing round it..

    I have spied your boat decks SJ.... Very Very impressive..
    They have a certain class about them.. its all about the little details.

    As promised, the fuel tank outlet union..
    Brass with 4mm brass pipe soldered in..
    The tank had two huge holes drilled in it.. the union fills one up.
    The other will have a small blanking plug.
    Another reason for the angled union, was so the pipe misses the brake caliper that nestles in the pocket at the back of the tank.

    I'm liking it too...
    I think I will go with the SKOPED with DOTS...
    The DOTS were to represent black cherries.
    I will try a few more configurations of DOTS, closer together, further apart, nearer the edge etc etc etc...
    There was one mock up I did, but forgot to take a photo........
    It was covered in DOTS, with the DOTS touching each other...
    That looked like it was the wood that had been stuck over grip tape.

    It has been a glorious day, here in the UK..
    Not a cloud in the sky.
    Lawnmowers buzzing all day.
    Butterflies wafting about on the breeze.

    I moved the BLACK CHERRY Out in to the garden.
    Today is the first time that so many bits have come together to form something resembling a Goped .
    Its a dry build to see how it is shaping up.
    Although I could envision it, until it all goes together in real life its anybody's guess as to the final look.
    My original idea was to have all the raw silver aluminium parts anodised black.
    The engine mount was to stay red, being one of the few bits of colour.
    I am quite liking the black and silver look........
