What was today's Sling project-Mods , goodies.....?

  • Installed the SSV Works Subwoofer box yesterday...for those that have not done it...it is hands down the most annoying thing I have ever installed in the Slingshot. My entire sound system that I put in took less time and had less headaches.

    Have you installed a coolant tank yet?!? If not, wait for that fun adventure.

    Owner of Slingshot #263 that has some stock parts left on it. :D

  • Hmm I have purchased one and is on my list of to do's. Any words of wisdom or just get ready to use those special words when things don't go as planned. My Short shifter hopefully gets done today!

    It is a great product and I am really happy with my DDM tank. I just hate installing them.

    1. Get some good gloves so your hands get less cut and bruised
    2. Change your pinch clamps to worm clamps
    3. Make sure you don't cross thread the bolts - you may need to squeeze the brackets together a little bit
    4. Mark the hose position on the stock tank, so you know how it goes on the new tank
    5. Prepare yourself mentally for the lower hose being a pain

    Maybe it was easier for others and I was one of the only ones that hates this install....

    Cover the front of the tank with painter's tape then duct tape.
    After removing the old tank, bottom hose is a pain, bend the mounting tab that is furthest away from center 45 degrees outward.
    Do not reuse the stock clamps. Buy some work gear types.
    Are you replacing the hoses? If so, cut the bottom hose to remove the old tank.
    Install the bottom hose on outlet pipe for the engine.
    Slide the tank in place whilevending the top of the bottom hose to slide on the lower connector for the tank.
    Once the hose is started, wiggle the tank down on the hose. (Tripod insert quote here).
    Install the mount bolt on the drivers side.
    Using something to push with....bend the other mount tab back facing straight forward and install the bolt.


    Don't forget to drain the old tank until it is empty plus a couple of seconds. (You want the coolant level out of the bottom hose)


    PM me your number if you want to talk.


    Should only take about 15 minutes this way.

  • Make it easier on yourself and just remove the dash...wish I would’ve did it when I did mine.

  • 60,000 miles and another oil change today. I also installed the E-3 spark plugs. Finished up the center hood scoop that I got from @Trooper will do the install tomorrow when the paint dries. Raining here since about 1 PM so I am just doing stuff getting ready for Maggie Valley. I also polished out the clear coat on the new fenders that I installed a while back

  • I know what ya mean - I was really strained and nervous watchin ya do it - I even broke a sweat with the fan blowin on me ;(:00008172:

    Don't forget to put up pics on that hood scoop install.

  • I know someone asked to make a cover for the DDM coolant tank.
    This is what I used on mine


    After I received it I sandblasted it carefully and primed it after that I painted it so I think is the easier and cheaper way to replace it instead of making a new cover.
