Hey everyone so I'm looking for a tutorial on how to add some senton body mounts on my typhon but I cant seem to find any tips or videos anywhere. Does anyone have any idea on what exactly I need to do to install them? The mounts came by themselves no screws or pins nothing, I just have the plastic pieces lol. Thanks in advance

You would need the senton shock towers and the senton body posts plastic holder/frames.

On a side note, I really like the proline secure loc posts. They are smaller in diameter but all that is required is to cut a standard bic pen sheath as a perfect insert, and drill small pilot holes through the screw holes for mounting the posts 🤓

These are the the ones I used:

PROLINE 630500 Mounted (Ten-SCTE, SCTE 2.0) Extended Front and Rear Body

Hey I still haven't switched body posts lol. The ones you listed are easier to Mount that the sentons body posts? I can't find the screw size to hold on to the body mounts..

Assuming we are talking 6s cars here?

Yeah, the Senton body mount is not a direct bolt on, but it only need a little bit of work to make it fit. You need to test fir / trim/repeat to get the lip around the edge of the body mount trimmed to fit the Typhon towers, then (I think) drill a pair of hols in the shock tower to have some place to bolt it on. Thru-bolt, with a nut on the back side.

Here is my hybrid-LP-outcast, the tower is actually from a Talion. I didn't need to drill the Talion tower, as it had holes for it's body mounts.

I can’t remember what I used but I believe I used m2 socket cap head screws. Drilled a small pilot hole through the posts when I found the right height.
