Buy the setup decals and paste it to anything thats flat. Glass is notorious for being ultra flat if done right.

just a camber gauge and piece of glass or a cutting board sounds like the best way not to mention the cheapest.

Here's how I used to check toe before I got a system:

Take a sharpie and hold it against in inside of the contact patch on a tire. Spin the tire so that there is an even pinstripe around the surface. Do this for both tires. Then get a caliper or ruler and adjust the links so that the front of the tires are the same length apart as the rears.

Anyone know the measurements on that decal?

For my setup board, I'm using a very dense foam about 1.25 in. thick with a 3/4 in. piece of plexiglass on top. Total= $12

If you want to use glass I might suggest trying to get the tempered cutting boards. Glass is definitely the flatest material I have found so far. I epoxyed t-nuts ( _[=]_ )to the bottom of a tempered glass cutting board from Lowes and threaded round head carriage bolts ( C--- )into the t-nuts from the bottom. If you do this you'll get better results by using only three legs though as it only take 3 points to define a plane. Two legs on one side and the other in the middle of the opposite side. I am trying something different tonight. I am going to glue the head of a flat headed bolt to the board and then thread on very long (1.5" [//////////] ) nuts. I couldn't get quite enough adjustment with the t-nuts if the surface was very unlevel. I also bought a longer level (I had been using a 1" torpedo level) that is less affected by the small ripples in the textured glass.

Cutting board 9$
Longer level 4$
Nuts & Bolts 1$
Epoxy 3$

Time 1 Hr. including design and testing.

Phenochilus &TC4 Paul- I have heard and seen on some boards that the decals to not adhere well to the boards using the sticky backing. Guys at my track bought them and then they started peeling up. We figure its due to the chemicals we submit our boards to. At first I was just like "just use liquid nails to get it down, but we realized it would be impossible to get the decal entirely flat. Just a thought.

i am kinda in the same situation ...i also wanna make my own setup board

i am thinking a piece of thick glass but i wanna put stickers on it without interfering with my setup system so i was thinking of some plastic or sumthing and sticking my stickers to that then gluing the plastic to the bottom of my glass.......but then there is a chance that you will see the glue from the other side

i was also thinkin of a custom board by $desighns but that would cost more and i wouldnt be able to get it for ages

what should i do?

You might try mod-podge. Is a clear glue/gel substance. Girls use it all the time when they collage in their scrap books. I'm a teacher and we use it to decorate boxes. You would put your sticker on the bottom of the glass, sticky side up, and then "mod-podge" all around it and on it. It dries pretty clear. You can get it at hobby lobby, michaels, and maybe even walmart.
