    Alignment Pegs:

    These are great to have in scratchbuilds or in areas [needing] to eliminate the factory pegs.

    Needed are two separate sizes or plastic rod (the two being a tight fit when one is inserted within the other).

    Cut the larger of the two rods in half. The smaller rod needs to be the full length of the two larger rod pieces. Glue the smaller rod inside one of the two larger rods:

    Tightly secure your components that will need alignment. Once that is in the exact place [desired], insert the alignment peg across the two panels, and glue it into place; allow it to dry overnight:

    Shown here are my secondary pegs which will force the feet into alignment with the leg when in car mode:
