    haha thanks Don! Some day it may be worth pulling the motor out of this thing just to get back all the tools I've dropped in the engine bay. Every time I drop something it turns into a game of "Plinko" hoping it falls through to the ground so I don't have to waste more money on tools. 9 times outta 10 it doesn't. Fortunately a replacement lug key was only $7. I think I just pulled a bonehead move and left it on one of the lugs before I took it for a test drive. Too many things going on at once and not paying attention as usual. After 11.5 years, this is finally starting to become a respectable Typhoon.

    That looks great. Can you please share some information on what was necessary to install the front wilwood brakes. Also if you can share the part numbers of the calipers i would appreciate it. Its driving me a little crazy trying to put together the item list. Thanks

    Re: What did you do to your SyTy today? (part 2)

    I only see a single piston offered by Wilwood. Is it for a 2nd gen conversion?
    UPDATE:
    If you go into their caliper search, it is there
    Caliper No: 120-11872-RD

    So, it is a bolt on?

    Re: What did you do to your SyTy today? (part 2)

    Did a lil tab repair today, although my method differed slightly from the one on How-tune... rather than hold the tabs in place with masking tape, I glued them with instant glue first. If you're not familiar with this stuff, this is easily the best super glue you can get. I use this stuff for everything. It's really thin too, so as long as the surface is scoured a bit, it will work it's way into every little crevice and bond to it. Once you have the piece where you want it, you hit it with accelerator and it dries/hardens instantly.



    I got all the tabs glued into place and then mixed up the 3m epoxy. The How-Tune write up called for 3m plastic spreaders, but those looked a little too big to really get in there and spread this stuff around, so I opted for those small brushes you use for rubber cement... got a few 5 packs at Orchard for $1.59ea. I'm pretty curious to see how this stuff holds up. I'm going to let it cure for a few days before I put it back on. But here's what I ended up with... It doesn't look like it in the pic, but I put 3 layers of epoxy on each tab... which may or may not be overkill, but I really do not want to do this again, so I'd rather overdo it. I also got some big washers to use with the screws that hold the tabs on, so all the mounting pressure isn't concentrated in that one little area.


    These trucks really are a never ending project... boredom is a luxury when you have a SyTy.

    Since this truck was originally Argent/White and I had it all white, I plasti dip'ed the cladding with an Anthracite Grey. Loving the new look.

    I used the spray cans. Although I do have the prayer and a gallon of plasti dip, I ended up buying spray cans to do it. 12 cans gave me roughly 6 coats. Not to bad.

    That looks really good! Did you remove the cladding or just tape off the body?

    Thx. Yeah just taped and masked the bigger areas around the cladding. It actually cuts pretty good on the edges. Watched a few youtube vids and went for it. gave it about a 2" separation from the edge of the cladding and it peeled off easy.
