    Hello everyone, I just thought you would be interested in a minor modification for the Mirage/ Hot Rodimus mold. Pick up An AMT/Ertl 1:24 scale Ford GT model, single out the tail lights. Paint the back side of them Tamiya transparent red (do not paint the connector pin). Widen the hole on Mirage/Hot Rodimus's Tail light socket and this much more detailed part fits right in !! Here are the results ! Can you pick out the GT with the original Lights??

    Wow, that really does look sharp. Nice work.

    *Edit-Is it the yellow one with the original lights?*

    NICE TOUCH!!! I'm in love with the Mirage and Hot Rodimus figures, but I'm afraid to share the love (i.e. display at work) because of their super delicate racing stripes.

    Do you have any images of the how-to process?

    Awesome. That's the finishing touch this mold needs. I'll have to check that out. :)
