Road Warrior's Build

Details of the Mod's that have been done to my Slingshot

    Again, I am totally impressed with one of the community members products - Dieter Stueckle AKA @mytoy that I think it is worthy of a article

    I must admit that when I first saw the MYTOY covers, I really liked them but I thought they were a bit pricey. I really did not like the looks of the Twist Dynamics covers at all (they are really pricey). Then MYTOY came out with a package price for all 5 pieces he makes which made it tempting... then MYTOY had a 4th of July sale... SOLD

    So I got the Complete set of covers, double nut, cam adjuster bolt, and brake clutch at a discounted price of $160.00 instead full price less the 4th of July special. The parts came quickly and were packed with extreme care - Seriously, there was no way they were getting damaged in the mail which is nice to see. When I got them unpackaged, I was totally blown away with the quality - SUPER NICE PIECES - MYTOY even included an Allen wrench.

    Here is my before and after Pics

    I have to start out this post saying that I am totally impressed with Phil Ward AKA @mniron and his hood buttons

    At higher speeds the fenders if my Slingshot vibrated and moved which kind of freaked the wifie out a little. I was thinking about how to stabilize them without taking away from the lines or making it look funny. I came across Phil on FaceBook and Messaged him back and fourth - I called him and he was super helpful so I told him I would buy his gen 3 hood button kit when it became available (I like to spend my money with the little guys). He messaged me when he got his kit together and I sent him money (most places don't follow up so I was impressed with that)

    The kit came and it was Awesome - it had the right size hole saw, a punch and his special template - I did not get a pic of the 15 pages of instructions in color - It amazes me the companies that send instructions in black and white and you cant make out the pictures - it did not require any specialty tools (which

    Noticed the factory hood pads had disappeared - so Naturally the SlingMods folks are happy to sell me some replacements

    They come in a kit but without the alcohol wipes that everything else comes with...

    Super simple to install - and it takes up the space the factory ones did

    Fairly inexpensive - looks great and I believe has some function

    Took the battery panel off and needed to do some work back there
    What a mess and really how would I ever get jumper cables in there

    bought a fuse block and some other parts to clean it up a little - Hate the color of the frame - custom red overspray

    Applied a little paint - basic black

    Cleaned up the wiring a bit - added an Anderson plug for the jumper posts

    Had to make a few wires - but got an 18 inch ground wire to replace the 8 inch factory one

    Put all the fuses in and Cleaned up the battery - do like the Optima red top battery

    Installed the battery -everything fit nicely - I like the the battery tray/hold down (it came with my sling)

    Installed the Anderson plug to the back cover - stainless hardware - added a USB charger too
    Why a USB charger you ask?
    While sitting next to my Sling in a lawn chair at a car show it will be nice to keep my phone charged plus it was only $16

    I think it turned out pretty cool - the USB charger has a voltage meter in it -

    I do want to replace the plastic
