Seller has been less than accurate in his descriptions of parts he's selling. 5 members of this forum have been dissatisfied with the items they have received or never received them at all. A member of another forum has also been scammed for a large sum of money. This user is currently under investigation by his local authorities. It is strongly advised not to deal with this member under any circumstances.

Jon was selling vinyl decal kits as well as electric fan mounts to forum members and collected money for items he never delivered.
This is the second time Jon has fallen excessively behind on his commitments to the SyTy community.
At this time we do not recommend placing any orders with Mirrado Graphics or Jon directly until all of those who have yet to receive their orders are satisfied.

  • 1992 Project typhoon $3500

    Well, I hate to do this but I am torn. I bought this about 4 years ago in Florida, no rust (only 1 pin hole near the rear window. But it ran like poo. So, Brandon helped me and we got it running, but at the end of the year, I tore it apart with the hopes of getting a repaint. Well, life stepped in, anew kid, a large addition, wife changing jobs, etc. And the project has been sitting for 2 years in the stage you see it. Everything is there. All cladding (Mark, who used to work on cladding from Ohio... well used to be), fixed all the cladding (tabs), There is NO RUST on the truck other than the surface where I used the DA on it. Ihave a set of ty wheels for it, the motor is fine, no issues when I stopped it.
    I have the money to get it repainted, but would rather sale it , andbuy one that is done and complete. It seems like I have no time to spend working on it to get it done, and if I get it painted, I am afraid I will never be able to get it put back together.
    All parts are labeled and baggied, so there are no issues.
    The shell is rust free with the exception of the small pin hole near the rear window. Floor is great, under it is great. Full interior, seats are great. Has an ultimate set up.
    I am in Pittsburgh PA. Let me know if interested. It would be great for the parts alone, or if your shell is a rust bucket.

      If there comes a need for it to be parted out, I'd like to know what you'd want for the Engine+Trans, as long as the trans is SYTY original, and the engine is in good working order. Maybe a couple other pieces too. I'll even come get them.

        You would be money ahead by buying everything and parting out the TY. The engine/trans alone is worth alll of that. The cladding is another 2k or more.

                    Was the truck two tone or solid apple/apple? What was the mileage on the truck? Do you have the stock wheels? Any way you can send me other pictures before you took it apart? Interior condition prior to disassembly?

                    I'm not on the forum very often but very interested. Thanks
