    Last night I took off Grimlocks arms, and Sludges legs, due to looseness.

    What is the best way to make those limbs tight once more?
    Do I put a layer of paint to make it tighter, or is there a more effective method?

    Please help me out, I've been able to fix quite a few G1s with a screwdriver, but these joints are more loose due to wear and tear I believe.

    I will also be doing the same to Slags legs, once I get a good method.
    (didnt want too many screws laying around)

    Thanks alot!!!!!

    Added some pics of his shoulders without the arms.
    Yes I am missing half of his 'wings', SUCKS, its on a pin too. Also he's G2 lol. Oh and his lower dino-jaw is gone. Someone found him in the dirt on a camping trip and thought of me. That was maybe 10 years ago.

    His screws were rusted, but I popped those suckers loose .....

    any help on tightening these arms? I have his weapons but he cant hold his arms up.

    couple layers of paint worked like a charm on Grimlock, those weapons wont be falling to his sides anytime soon. :) 

    Assuming it will work the same for the other two.

    Gotta get his stickers now.

    Those missing parts are gonna bug the hell out of me though. Oh well, war wounds......
