    Same here. I'm slowly getting into my minor repair and your posts and PMs have been extremely helpful. I'm going to order the epoxy and associated stuff after the holiday.

    Re: A few 550/550sx bits and bobs

    I believe my SX is a 90 and I'm probably going to use a non-SX pole bc that's what I have in good shape.

    Re: 1990 js 550
