View Full Version : Spimmy Timmy What I'm I sceaming help!!!

Well I now have a new project in the works.
My question is fairly simple. Can an intimidator LPR thread into a spyder front block?
Is a timmy fornt block anything special?
Could I drill and tap a spyder front block for a barb, install a timmy LPR and have it function the way it would on a timmy?
The only reason I'd custom build a front block is so I wouldn't have to cut the front of a body to make a standard front block fit...hint hint.

No. A timmy LPR block and a Spyder ASA are totally different. The LPR block has routing passages for air. While the Spyder ASA does not.
On another note if you are using a standard Spyder body there won't be any need of any major modifications unless you are using an Alias front block. The Timmy front blocks fit right in just as a Spyder ASA would.

In order to use the Spyder front block, on a spimmy, you might look into using a cocker LPR. Instead of the gauge, put a 1/8" 90* fitting and run the cocker LPR alongside the body. That would keep it tight enough you could run the LP air lines into the frame without them sticking out too much.
Damn it, now you've given me ideas too! lol

ARRRRRGGGGHHHH......I'm using a VS2 body....
I traded for swooshs which is going to be ano'd then I was going to Spimmy Mine...I didn't want to cut it up though.
Hmmm back to the drawing board

You don't need to cut up anything, do what I said and it'll work. Trust me on it.

Although the Cocker LPR thing will work, its absolutely hideous, no offense to people who have done it this way. If you are using a VS body I'm guessing that you are going for a sleek, mean looking design, the Cocker LPR will take so much away from that. If you are going to ano the gun anyway, cutting it shouldn't be a problem. I'm sure you could come up with a way to cut it and still look good. Maybe I can help if you need it. Shoot me a pm.

Thinking about it, running it to the side wouldn't be the prettiest way, what about removing the LPC and replacing it with an 1/8" NPT to whatever-the-LPC-is-threaded adapter and have the LPR under the barrel?

That might work but I just had a thought. What if instead of cutting up the VS body, modify the Timmy Front Block to fit. I have never put a Timmy Front Block up to a VS body but I'm assuming that because of the little rounded area on the body where the block goes the block is too big, correct? I think you actually have a little bit that you can shave off the front block to make it fit, then you can just get that reano'd and you wouldn't have to touch the body. Just an idea, I don't know if it would work or not.

Here's some picks with the VS2 front block, a 2k2 intimidator block and the VS2 body, sorry some of the pics are fuzzy, I can re-take later if neccessary:
As you can (hopefully) see, a 2k2 timmy front block is way too big for the VS body, and the block is too thin to be milled down to fit. Maybe someone with a 2k5/alias front block can take pics?

there is a timmy front block made by some company that is small and has a cocker lpr at the end. maybe that would work. or maybe a t1 block and lpr.

Thanks guys...I may just cut the body and use an alias block
