    Looking at CGI and movie images, the front hood part on Sideswipe/Swerve's foot was making me less than pleased.

    To give him more "accurate" feet, I simply broke off that hood part and sealed it back to the rest of the hood (see second pic)

    I shaved around where it used to be (on the foot) making the brake rotor visible all the way around.

    in the example below, I filled and sanded the small gap where I attached it back on the hood.

    He still stands great (using the heels as support)

    i think someone already discovered this. when you broke it off did it come off relatively clean without much to scrape off?

    relatively easy. it snaps off, there's a small black piece of plastic with a pointless pin in it, it needs some cleaning up.
    After looking around, I see Jin and Mampy did the same thing! lol. oh well.

    I don't know, even though it makes the foot more accurate, on the flip-side, it adds even more of the front of the car dangling off his back, and there's a lot of it there to begin with.
