Can you help me out and send me a link?

I will shoot you a pm, it will show up in the “conversation” tab at the top of the page.
I am needing to get a set of hood pins, can you give me the information on them
I sent you a pm

Do you have 2 XL if I will take 2 . Text me 219-363-8281 thank you
I would also be interested in a pin kit for my pearl black 2017. Hope I have the nerve to drill my body parts, or for that matter the slings body parts. Anybody have the goof covering decals? They will fit the 17s right? I'll beta test them.
So far nobody has goof up on the install, it seems to be mostly nerves that get in the way. I have installed Buttons on all models of SlingShots. Feel free to PM me for any other questions or concerns.
Top of the Day, Please send how to purchase a diy kit with black buttons for my 2015 base sling. and if there are options for h/d pins as i
think i read about and any other items that you offer.
Mniron do you have a website or number
I will pm you, Thanks
My sling is going in to the dealer next week to have most of the body panels replaced including the hood. I plan to remove the hood buttons prior to droppinh it off but what about the pins attached to the frame? Can I leave those or should they be removed also?
Leave the pins in place, after removing the Buttons raise the bumpers up about 1/4". This will allow enough space for the new panels without hitting the plastics. After you get your SlingShot back you cut the holes in the new panels from the bottom aligned with the hole in the subframe, drop the bumpers, check alignment, adjust if needed.
The hole is 3/4", are you in need of a holesaw? I can aslo send you out a set of the DIY instructions, you would find them very helpful. Email or PM me your address.
Can you send me info/pricing/installation for your hood pin kit to firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd like to get my name on the list for a set of black buttons in the Rockies. Could you repost the picture of the different colors again I was not able to find them?
I will take care of you, just come see me at Alpha Powersports! I will pm you a picture or two.
I'm in, let me know where to send and how you want the funds sent. Will go ahead with (2) sets. Do front first and study the back a bit! I'm white so I think the black sets would do me fine... LOL
LOL, sent you a PM
I wanted to do Kerrville, but don't think I will have the sling back from the shop in time. Not thinking to make Maggie, or Vail until next year. Hopefully our paths will cross in time so I can get your services rendered upon my Sling!!
Thank you for your reply.
Is this mod something a person with decent handy man and mechanical skills could preform? Am really interested in doing (2) sets, 1 front and 1 to the rear of hood. Really like your method much more than the other option that is available.
I have DIY kits for the front of the fenders, comes complete with instructions, alignment tool, hole saw, etc. The rear set would require some design for placement. I certainly can get you all the needed parts. I would suggest installing the front set to start so you get a understanding of the needs to proceed with a rear set.
I would like info on how or where to get you to install hood buttons. Any info would be much appreciated!
I will be at Kerrville, Maggie Valley and Vail working at Alpha Powersport doing installs, are you attending one of these events?
The Fender Button kit will be for the fenders, but these buttons have numerous uses. I hope to expand how they are used. Looking forward to working with you.
Hello Sir.... Have read a bit about the button kit you plan to offer. Please put me on your list! I may even think of two sets, one for close to the windshield, would just have to figure a way to mount. Thanks
You were not negative - I kinda thought some of the others were not giving him a fair shake and wanted him to have the opportunity to defend his idea. Ya had to tell me ya had me sumthin special didn't ya!!! Now I got 5 months to wonder - if it was anybody else but you I'd be nervous!! Can't wait to see you again - the buttons come in a close 2nd!! LMAO
I was wondering Switzerland! I like Noel also, I was trying not to negative in my comments. Time will tell the differences, I am already making changes from the miles of use I have seen on mine. I will drill your paint with pride so your dog can live. As for the polished buttons, I already have them. But, I will sell them to someone else because you will receive a surprise! You are going to love it!
I love Noel to death and I wanted him to get a fair shake. I still am gonna go with you and your install cause I already gave you my word and even as easy as Noel makes it look I AINT DRILLING MY OWN PAINT - I'd rather shoot my dog!! LOL. See ya in Kerrville I'll remind ya to get me a polished set when it gets closer!!
LOL!! With this bunch I gotta get prepared - I know sumbody is gonna jack with me sum kinda way before you finish. See ya in Kerrville for the fun
Thanks! Got you covered, someone's going to film it I know!
YOU are the only one I trust to do mine. I love Noel to death but I think yours is a better design - don't forget polished / I will pay the xtra!! You can install at night or day - I just can't watch!! LMAO
Happy Thanksgiving, I already was planning on having a set ready for you, although I have not registered for Kerrville yet, I am planning on artending. I believe this event is going to be great! Maybe I should install yours under the cover of dark, you will not even know it happened! I still can do some of my best work in the dark.
I made up my mind!! I ain't gonna watch but I trust you to drill my paint for the buttons. Any possibility you could get them polished & put em on in Kerrville?
Well I will spring for a polished set if you can make either of the Texas rallies. Do you supply a double shot of bourbon for the owner before you drill into the paint??? If not I will supply my own!!
Hey how are you doing? Still sorry I chickened out on the hood buttons in Eureka Springs. After much debating with myself I may take the leap. What is the next rally are you going to attend and can you have some chrome ones made and if so how much?? Thanks loads!!
Glad to hear from you Bill, I am very busy at work these days. I need for SlingShot time. Not sure on the next Rally but planning one in Texas, maybe if work gets the best of me I will do both! Still planning to go to Maggie and Eureka. Chrome would be one off and hard to price. The top portion of the button is T-6 aluminum, polished looks like chrome, unlike most billet aluminum resists tarnish and easily maintained. As much as you clean your machine they would never get a chance to dull! Polished buttons would cost only about $10 extra. I am going to have a couple of sets of the polished on hand next Rally.
I haven't heard much about the hood buttons lately. Are you planning on offering them, in any way? Will you be at the slingshots in the Rockies by any chance? I hope your wife has recovered from your accident. Thanks for any info.
I am just getting around to the Fender Buttons now. Since the accident we have recovered quite well and just started enjoying the Slingshot. It took until last week to get the last parts but I am making some additional changes yet.
I have about 30 sets of buttons right now but have not gotten the kits put together entirely, I will be supplying a proper size hole saw along with an automatic center punch with the kits.
I very busy with my regular job and can hardly take time away, missed Sturgis for the second time in the last 16 years. I will not be at the Rockies but will be at Eureka Springs. I plan on doing some installs there and see how the early customers are holding up. There has been some minor concerns but feel the Fender Buttons are working very well for the early installs.
Now that the 2017's are out I want to see the fit up on them as well before I release kits for sale. I do not believe there is any changes but need to know when offering the kits.
Keep in mind I am not a vendor, but rather a private party. I need to be careful where I tread.
If and when you decide to sell a kit I would like to get one. I wonder if you would like to tell me what concerns the early adapters might have? Thanks for your quick reply.
One button had failed according to owner, I replaced, asked for the fail unit back to test, have not received it or heard from him. One pin broke , not sure the cause, I also replaced, owner is pleased. Just part of selling things is backing it up. Myself and one other that I know of have at least 8000 miles each with no issues at all. These things work!
You will get a set, no problem.
I'm definitely interested, and have been since I first saw them. I was just hoping to have you do the "dirty work" and drill the holes. That is a leap of faith for me.
Believe me, it was a leap of faith the first time for me! If these things are really going to take off, I can't install all of them, they need to be simple enough for the novice to do it. That is the reason I will supply the proper hole saw and need simple enough instructions so a novice will be able to do the install. There will be places where I will be doing installs, just can't be at all locations right now.
