Id crop more on the left side. There is nothing there that adds to the photo, and there is about .5-1" of solid black. Does nothing, if not take away from the image. Make those changes and it will be a much better photo! Not saying its a bad photo now. It's good. With said changes made, it'd be better.

On a side note, I've seen the logo but can't place it.

I used the softest rollerblade wheels I could find (somewhere they say the skateboard wheels are too loud), and some random bearings. The hardest part was correctly drilling the holes in the aluminum. At first I put them too close so the wheels rubbed against each other, then because of the size of the wheels, I had to use extra nuts/washers in order to push the wheel farther away from the aluminum so that they sat correctly on the PVC tubing. Took a while to get it perfect, but soooo worth the effort. I can't wait to get more use out of this rig. Once I get a chance to wash my car, you can bet there are going to be videos made.

Also, you're SUPPOSED to use two bearings per wheel (I didn't realize this), but since you're not putting the weight of a human on the wheels, I only used one each. This is mostly because I only bought enough for one in each wheel

Oh well. It still works great!
