    here's another one of my decaled alternators, presenting Wheeljack! (it's a K.O. btw! )

    I wanted to make a homage to G1 wheeljack without radically altering the new ford GT mustang decos,
    originally wheeljack's decos are a mis of red and green, but i decided to just copy the sponsor decals from
    the original wheeljack and make them conform to the new deco. notice that I removbed the Lancia Stratos markings
    as wheeljack's no longer a stratos but a mustang :p 

    Before and after comparison pics.



    Here's wheeljack in his alt mode in his newly decoed self...

    See the before and after comparison pics

    Great job, very neat and precise - but it needs to be the proper Al-Italia colours! They're so iconic to motorsport fans (like me :) )

    @Plowking: Thanks bro! yeah I didn't want to overdo the decoes, I didin't want him to look gaudy :) 

    @Jon5000: Thanks bro! and soooo sorry 'bout changing alitalia colors from green to blue, just shows my ignorance hehehe :drool:  but anyway, I may do one in proper colors and give him green racing stripes instead :) 

    Thanks for looking guys!

    I like it!:thumbs2:  While personaly I'm not a fan of the Wheeljack mold due to the headlights being removed, the numbers do make it feel more like Wheeljack!

    @ Autobot Burnout: Yeah we feel the same way, I felt the the alt. wheeljack was lacking something, and the Alitalia decals wouldn't have done it alone if not for the numbers. :)
