Hey all.
What would you think the top amount of money could be spent on a spimmy if all the modding could be done for free by me?
I'm talking about good parts too..not crap, and most likely new.
Would it be worth it, or would I be spending enough to just buy a timmy?:rolleyes:

To buy new parts you might as well buy a used timmy.

I would just buy a used timmy because you would have all the parts at once and it would be cheaper than buying it new.

Since I built one and know how much I put into it, I would go with the other two, you're better off just buying a used timmy.

2 reasons:

1. Building a Spimmy cost more than a used Timmy

2. If you consider the amount of money and time you would put into a Spimmy vs. what you could sell it for after you're done, its just not worth it.

you could spend an astronomical amount as the top amount of the build. if you were to spend 50ish on a bolt, 30ish on an eigen(sp) ram, 70ish on a noid, another 70ish(lowball) on a board, 60ish on a reg, 50ish on an LPR, 80ish on a ram sleeve(empire pressure balance), 50ish(another lowball) on wiring and eyes(not including LCD screen), nowhere sells clammys for new, grips, possibly side plates, eye covers, and miscellaneous screws. I'm not gonna bother totalling it up, but as you can see it adds up fast.

building a spimmy is expensive and is something you do to say, hey, look what i did. the cheapest route i'd say would be to buy a used timmy, and cannibalize it for parts.

^but the fun way is skipping the stock parts and heading straight for the aftermarket.

for an entire setup, excluding hpa tank, i'll spend roughly $400. my suggestion is buy used parts and look for good deals.

Well if you are a person who likes to build stuff and make it your personal own, then I'd do it and search alot for the best deals possible. I was going to do it, but I changed to pump. ;)

Be prepared to spend alot. It'll take time, money and if you are milling, then effort to complete a spimmy. It wont be worth alot, in $$, when its done, but its something you can call your own.

If you do decide to go through with it, I wish you the best of luck.

Is there any parts that you can drop in on a spyder and use?
I would like to get the stuff I can now, and at least have a usable gun still then buy the more expensive.
Thanks,
-Tim

For a Spimmy?

Only parts I know you can use are the body, feedneck, valve spring and valve body screw. Other than the reg and asa, your stuck with Timmy parts.

ok.
I will be slowly working on a spimmy while I'm playing stock class
When I emerge with money at the end(I'm buying a car first):rolleyes:
I will have myself a spimmy.

I did find a new Clammy online

would it be possible to use this (http://www.ottersccustoms.com/images/sm-lpr.jpg) on a spyder without any modifications?
