    In some of the Sideswipe images I've seen, I see his rear end from vehicle mode being used as his chest, and his window from the front on higher up and positioned differently. I know that involves trimming specific pieces with a Dremel, but I'd like to know which ones and where.

    If there are any other modifications for Sideswipe or Sunstreaker to make them look more like their G1 transformation, please share. It would be greatly appreciated.

    but how does having the rear end as a chest make Sideswipe more G1?

    well it COULD be argued that the end of the car without the engine makes up his chest...

    For suntreaker, you can cut his roof from the rear window and glue it to his front windshield. I have only seen pics of this mod, I haven't gotten around trying it myself.

    Here are some tips for this mod:

    I'm thinking of doing this mod on my Sideswipe so I had it saved.

    The roof mod for Sunstreaker is here (scroll down) and there are links to other Alternator mods at the top of this thread (including the Sideswipe mod I linked above).

    Sorry for the confusion. I was asking initially about modifications available for Sideswipe, and then asked if there might be some modifications to make the Viper Brothers look more G1 by transformation alterations.

    That sounds cool, but when analyzing his transformation the roof would interfere with his chest. Honestly, I think Sunstreaker looks great since the transformation is like he used to have in G1. Sideswipe, one of my all-time favorite characters, is the one I'm mainly interested in modifying or altering.

    I love the trunk/chest modification. It makes Sideswipe have an updated transformation of his G1 self... just with the car turned backwards.
