I am collecting the items I want to build a blue lmfp reissue as a nice old-school setup, to compliment my popsicle setup....but I want to see if I can make my perfect mix deck....old with some new. I ordered a few un-cut 10" blanks, modern concave double kick. I plan on using the lmfp as a template for everything but the nose, I am going to use my (shredded and needing replacement) hieroglyphics for the nose template. I figure that will give me a lmfp shape with a 90s nose on a modern concave.
Anyway, looking to see if anybody has done this and if any of you have any hints or words of wisdom for me. I have read a million how-to's, but experienced input is always helpful. My plan is to mark the template, use a good jigsaw to cut it out and a handheld belt sander to round the edges and smooth it out. I was thinking of using the routing attachment to my dremel for the edge, but I think a belt sander will do a fine job.
As far as graphics, I would love to recreate the lmfp bottom graphic, but I don't see how that would be possible. So I might just go sticker/lacquer happy on the bottom. I'm going to paint the top white, use the winged ripper sticker in it's proper location, and a few other stickers and clear tape for the top. I always loved the stickers under clear on a white deck look.
