    First I did the old switch of parts from Grimlock and Wheeljack. I wanted the Red parts on 'jack when the Repolables come in. Also, I think I like the blue on Grim.

    Also began my new Alternator project. Want to see a Side Swipe without the Viper parts?

    Yep. Got me a Dremmel tool the other day with some sanding blades for it. Need to measure and cut apart my diecast and add the pieces. Also had to cut some more away from the viper. Lost the top seat bars, also cut away the back the with autobot logo. Just didn't fit.

    Man I wish I knew what I was doing to be able to do that sorda stuff. Alt rebuilding sounds awesome but a hobby like that would take alot of work and skills. Can't paint for crap and never tried modifying parts. Always wanted to make a General Lee TF from a die cast GL model kit and an Alt.
    Can't wait to see the results of your Sideswipe.

    Cool part switch between Wheeljack and Grimlock! Looks great, and if I ever get a couple of extra Wheeljacks I may do that too. For my Binaltech/Alternators repaints and kitbashes, I get another one besides my in-box or display models. I have an extra Shockblast, Meister, Grimlock, Windcharger and Battle Ravage in or coming in I plan on kitbashing. I'm undecided if I want to do custom characters, or "ugrade" the characters with custom graphics, etc.

    HA! That would be awesome wouldn't it? Might have to go see if KB has any of those DeLoreans left and if the bases fit.

    That's the one problem I had last time, your wheel bases, dashboard, and interiors need t oall match up otherwise it won't work right.

    And Side Swipe has undergone further demolition.

    You can tell I've taken quite a bit out of the back. The rear of the car I am using wouldn't fit on the autobot symbol. Also the seats have been shortened by their head rests. Here's a better image.

    [​IMG]

    That would be awesome. There's a store around here that has like every model possible. I might have to go steal your idea.

    Back!! :stick:  Bad dog, back away!! :stick: 

    Seriously, that is my idea!!! I knew the odds of it being the same were pretty good! :banghead:  I even figured out how to get the flux capacitor(sp?) to go onto his chest in bot mode.
