    Hi all. Finally got myself a MP soundwave.
    Saw previous review is paint the yellow into red.
    But I find the color look off.
    Wanted the mp5 or 8 metallic red.

    Found a red tape at a local stationary shop.
    The only hard part is to get the head to open and remove the visor.
    The rest is just cut and paste.

    At first I thought that was painted on...you cut the tape very well. Makes me contemplate repainting my soundwave's visor a darker red then he currently has.

    Actually, I was thinking of cutting a thin red clear plastic to fit .
    And replace the yellow visor . But couldn't find a small piece.

    Great idea.
    What brand is that?
    What store did you buy it at?
    What state do you live in?

    I couldn't find that tape or any tape similar in my area but I did find a set of red foil Valentine's day stickers in the scrapbookers section at Michaels. There were several stickers with solid red portions big enough to work for the visor. Thanks for sharing your idea. I like my SW better with a red visor and I didn't have to paint him!
