    I want to repaint a G2 Prime and Im having a hell of a time getting the front wheels off to remove the crotch piece. Anyone out there have any advice?

    I think you need the key for his chastity belt. :D 


    Have you tried the "heat the pins" method?

    Lol, unless arcee ate the key...

    On a serious note, if you check the stickied thread at the top of the kb page, you will see ops guide and that's how I learned how to remove pins.

    Prime's front wheels aren't that easy to remove. If it's the revised version of the mold, the front wheels sit loose on a common axle, and are held on by plastic caps on the ends. The legs are also monted on this axle. You can't just go heating it up, you'll damage a lot of other parts.

    Oh yeah, that's right. I was trying to remember how that part was configured, and didn't go digging out my G2 Prime or NY Convoy to check.

    Hmmm...sounds like it might be a job for some good ol' masking tape.
