    Hey all, Well I think I have bought up all the DOTM Sideswipes in the South Texas area for work on my Arcee project, I had one left over that was untouched so I thought I would play a bit with the blades and see what I can do.

    I popped the front wheels off and sawed off the OE (Original Equipment) Blades off the rotation disks, then trimmed the excess plastic and glued them on the side panel/door/wings.

    I took apart some Mechtech weapons that came with the Sideswipes and removed the blades from them. Then I notched the remaining rotation disks to accommodate the Mechtech blades after trimming the blade shaft a bit.

    I glued the rotation disks back to the arm, pressed the wheel back on and voila! new removable arm blades! The blades are more or less friction fit, the wheels and the notching keep the blades in place :)  I am working on a way to store them under the car when not deployed :) 

    Best of all, Still fully transformable! :)
