    Literally...

    As I have a few scions at my disposal. Maybe not the best match, but they do the job.

    The plugs need to be about a quarter inch longer, but they simply slip into the screw hole of the piledriver.

    i found that if you click the tracks in the shoulders so they are higher, the proportions look better, which i see you did

    Completely off topic, your name reminded me of an old picture I have sitting in my laptop:

    they look better than the acura arms. I think what you've done looks awesome...to the point where now I know i'm going to have to shell out the dough to buy another scion just for the freakin' arms!

    Looks good....its also good to know that Prowls arms aren't the only arms that'll work with minimum mods....

    Do tell about the plugs...for some reason, they look familiar to me....kinda like I've seen them somewhere before, they remind me of wheel pins for model cars

    Do I have this right, he still has his pile drivers and the arms mount on the bottom of the pile drivers? Or have you removed the pile drivers?

    those arms do look pretty good. nice job.

    I went with the Scion, like I said, because I have a few extras. I work for a Toyota Factory and all my friends had the same idea for birthday gifts. Also, the design of the arm favors the conversion over the Acura in my opinion. Plus I don't have to paint it.

    Actually, the plugs are custom made; turned down on a lathe out of Nylon. Too short too, there's a wad of tape holding the arm in place right now. I didn't allow for clearance of the piledriver protrusions.

    My first though was that it looked like a push pin out of an old board game spinner.

    I prefer the Prowl arms, Skids' arms just seem too long

    So you can pop the arms out and still use the piledrivers? Neat. Now where the hell is transrepro.com to make the arms for us already? Think of how many Skids figures would be saved!
