    Jin just posted a tutorial here that shows how he used a hot glue gun to adjust ball joint socket sizes. Maybe it'll be helpful for you...

    Thought that technique was common knowledge.....

    Anyway, you need to offer WAY more information in order to get an answer. What figures are you using for example. Generally I look for donor figures that have both the ball joint and capsule that I can harvest..... or hobbylink japan sells ball joint sets, but they are NEVER in stock.

    Perhaps to experienced customizers, but I'm a beginner and hadn't seen it before.

    the ball joints would be for 2 classics seekers and 2 for the generations drift and blurr molds.
