    Updated 9/12/11: Now complete with labels from reprolabels.com!

    After looking at Tracks and Wheeljack on my shelf, this guy became obvious. He is not completely finished, as I have contacted Delta about possibly doing a set of Wheeljack labels in Slicer colors. Also, I chose to keep Tracks' blue feet/bumpers because I do not prefer painted customs due to scratching.

    Here is the formula, not in any certain order:

    Swap parts from back legs between Wheeljack and Tracks.

    Swap wing tips, paint gold on Tracks wings to complete them like Wheeljacks' wings

    Rit-Dye white parts from Tracks' back - they will turn black within minutes!

    Use black dye to then carefully turn white arm parts gray - check often

    Now use the black dye on the face, weapons, and wheels - it will turn the silver paint gold!

    Paint Wheeljack spoiler black and put it on Tracks

    *use a soldering iron to remove and replace pins as needed*

    With a nice set of labels, this will be my ideal Slicer (also can work as SG Wheeljack, since he uses Slicer's colors).

    Beat me to it. Darn the luck. But I dig it. Just needs a little break up on the blue but sounds like you got that coming
