    Here's what I have so far. I'm still considering what to do with the running boards.

    At the moment, the seats don't allow the doors to fully close. There's a very slight gap. I'll have to cut a very small sectiopn of the grey plastic on the inside of the door to allow them to shut tightly.

    Overall though, i'm much happier with these than the original seats. I'll paint some sections of the seats with black to strike a balance between looking like leather and looking like the CG shields.

    Wow, this is turning out better than I thought :thumbs2: 

    Hope you don't mind but here are some possible ways you can paint the seats :)  It still resembles Bee's arm armour :)

    Those look great! Where did the seats come from?

    Nice digibashes by len_d69 as well. I agree, you should paint the inner part of the seat gray (or I'd prefer black actually). :)

    I've discussed this with a few others, but I'd think one could simply chop off the existing seat and fuse the Alt seat to the part that has the running boards.

    I considered that. I think i'd prefer there to be as little "extra" stuff hanging off the arms as possible.

    And these seats are from an old broken BT Grimlock.

    Nice photoshopping. I think I prefer the second scheme.

    As far as making this an Alternator style Alliance figure, it's going to be closer to the first series of BTs (lack of back seats). If someone figures THAT one out, for God's sake tell me!
    Hehe.

    I was wracking my brains to figure out an opening hood, but I think there's no way in heck that it could be done.

    Man.....i'm never going to finish my BM Jetstorm.

    Definitely looks good man

    I had the same idea, I have some alt chairs to use sitting on the shelf next to him, but I think im also gonna change out the whole forearm for another alt's forarms, so the cannon is gone, before I try to install them.
