AND SOME SICK STICKERS! all sandwiched between both layers of perspex

actually look at McMoney Designs and Tres Leonard for some even better looking pit boards. They (and may others too, these two are my fav) can put just about anything you want on them. Check out their the threads on this forum for further info.

after some input from someone who has used perspex as a board i'm going to add "L" shaped brackets around the edges to avoind any warping.

the only problem is i think it might be slightly larger than my actual pit table!

Warping is one thing to worry about, the size is a second thing to worry about...and the third is the fact that it uses 4 feet, so will want to 'rock'....you're better off sticking with your basic 3 point contact to establish your plane

There has been a few pitboards that I have seen that I can't seem to find. There is one trinity board that I think Matt Francis used at a race and there was a pic taken of his car with the pitboard underneath it. There is one, with a level on it. At this point, I have a McMoney board but it's too nice to use it and scratch it up . I have seen Tres Leonard's boards on his website and they are nice . Hopefully some readers will take pics of their pitboards and show them here.

Here is my car sitting on my pitboard. It's a double layer acrylic board that is painted on the bottom of the top layer.

Yeah, I saw Francis's mcmoney board.....very nice . But a while back he had this trinity board that had the measurements inscribed in the board. I am looking for a board that has the measurements so i can check width and stuff like that.

nah the feet are made so i can wind them in and out idependantly to acheive a flat surface even on non flat surface. i've fixed any warp issues. i've used some "C" brackets they fit perfect and will stop any warping. i'll post some updated pics when i have placed them on. thanks for the input
