    Quick rubber band tutorial for DOTM Voyager Ironhide.

    There are several ways to fix IH's chest and prevent it from popping out. One, is to do some drilling/cutting as per LimeWire's mod. The second one is to extend the peg that attaches chest by adding a plastic material. The third and easiest way is to use a rubber band.

    As you can see, nothing is pushing back on the black piece, which then makes it easy to pop out.

    Get a clear rubber band which usually comes with packaging and make a loop as shown.

    Now clip the black piece back and loop the other end of the rubber band on the stomach piece. That will now hold it in place.

    When you're ready to transform him to alt mode, just use a paperclip to fish out the rubber band. You can also swap the wheels to have more arm room. Hope this helps.
