How do you paint your skateboard trucks?

My skateboard is beat up and I can't afford a new one. How can I paint the trucks?

Even if you can’t afford a new skateboard, painting your trucks will give your skateboard a bold, new look!
To paint your skateboard trucks, you’ll need to remove them from the deck first.
Once you do that, clean up the old trucks or paint new ones. If you choose to clean up the old trucks, use sandpaper to remove any leftover paint. You can also use a wire brush.
After that, use a lint-free or tack cloth to get rid of any dirt or dust. Then, you can apply the primer.
Using spray primer and paint will be the easiest way to paint your trucks. One coat of primer and two coats of spray paint should do the trick. Wait in between applications for it to dry as well.
Be sure to follow the directions on the can of spray paint and primer. Wear gloves and paint in a properly ventilated space. Once the paint has dried, you’re good to put the trucks back on your board and enjoy its new look.
Even though you can’t afford a new skateboard currently, you should still look for ways to save money in other ways. One of those is through your car insurance. Sign up on the Jerry app today to compare quotes from over 50 different providers to get the best rate possible.
