Considered one of the essential portions of the Syclone, Typhoon, and
Sonoma GT. The body molding is specific to our trucks, and is quite difficult
to get a hold of. It is no longer in production. And from the looks
at the list's production cost speculations, they aren't likely to go back into
production. So, as with anything else on your truck, you need to keep it
in good shape. There are several products and methods to rejuvenating, or
improving the appearance of the cladding.
if these truck's cladding are starting to look a little old and oxidized.
Since the Syclone's Cladding wasnt painted with a Gloss finish, it needs a special
protectant. There are several products available to clean, and restore the
original 'luster' of the these expensive body moldings.
by far the best product i've used. easy to put on, and

to apply, more expensive, but comes out shiney, bonus points for it smelling like
Not Recomended.. Has potential

used it, its cheap, and easy to find, but it isn't as shiney as the others, and
usually looks streaky
is my testimonial. Me, personally, I use Black Chrome. The stuff rules.
My cladding isn't in the worst condition, but when I apply this stuff, It looks
almost like the cladding has a gloss coat. Below is an example of the product.
This truck had been sitting outside most of it's life. It was extremely
dull. While we were bored, we decided to apply the last of my bottle
to it. We were amazed by the results. His cladding looked as good
as my sy's (27,000 mi). He became a believer and swears by Black Chrome
Most of the Typhoons (I believe all but the black ones)
have painted cladding. A few syclones out there have painted their cladding
as well. Just thought I'd give ya'll a little gimpse of what a sy looks
like with glossy cladding
The Syclone and Typhoon share a lot of parts.
to the two trucks are the:
