    This is actually my first repaint, as I have never attempted to mod a figure before. I wanted to give Ratchet a more authentic appearance in vehicle form, so I decided to highlight areas that needed it.

    After cleaning the figure, I used Model Master's silver chrome trim to paint all of the headlights/spotlights, as well as all of the tow hooks on the front and back bumpers.

    I also painted the rims on all of the tires, including the spare on the top rack.
    I finished up by using a sharpie to give the rear view mirrors some actual appearance of reflection!

    I did not alter or paint the robot mode at all, which is why there's no pics of him in that configuration.

    I haven't done anything to the lightbar yet, but I plan to remove the factory version, and install one from a parts Crankcase.

    Thanks for looking!
