    Hey all, i have heard many times that clear nail polish is the trick to fixing loose joints.

    Does anyone have a website or any tips on what to do?

    What if the joint is hard to reach? Do you unsrew piece to access joints etc. etc.

    I would like to find the best method for tightening up some joints for display purposes.

    Im really clueless on the subject.

    Thanks for any info/tips!

    Are you referring to winged Sludge? :wink: 

    Usually, you'll have to take it apart to get to the loose joint. Once you get that far, coat all the parts of the joint that rub against each other, let it dry, and reassemble.

    I actually went through Sludge and did it on a couple of his joints for you.
