I only gloss coated the truck mode parts deciding to leave the teal/black armor. I used a burgundy color to go with the color palette and purchased the sword off of Ebay. It's the one thats supposed to be released with the premium Prime. I purchased a tanker trailer and truck model kit. I put together the trailer and painted it to match and striped the truck of its rear view mirrors, smoke stacks, horns, headlights, handlebar and licence plates. I used twist ties from the box for the cables at the rear and the thermal sticker on the roof had to be done. I thought long and hard for a cheesy trucker saying for the side of the hood and finially settle for this one. ehko.
