Chopped 8 wheeler

I thought I'd try and make my 8 wheeler a bit more rideable.
When I bought it I thought that a 33.5" x 13" deck with a 18.5" wheelbase sounded good.
However it was very unmanageable with the long wheelbase.
After chatting with my mate Loco Larry I decided to move the front trucks back, it now has a 15.875" wheelbase and has lost a few inches from the nose in a Lonnie Toft snub-nose inspired look.

I also took the time to replace the bushings with Bones Soft Hardcores all round while I had it stripped down.
