    It looks as if the portion photoed here is what's required to make this modification.

    If anyone has anything to add to this (information and/or photos), please feel free to do so.

    (NOTE: I removed the pin that connects the dash and the undercarriage rod simply for clarity of viewing things. Removing the pin is NOT a required step to this modification. This was simply done to illustrate just exactly what's going on with everything and each part.)

    After transforming Sideswipe where you can get "under the hood" (simply getting the robot parts out from under the hood area), if the figure is turned over where the bottom is facing up, this view can be visible:

    This:

    For the rocker panels to transform differently, this has to be done:

    . . . . and the result:

    the transformation is a little different also i messed with it a few minutes ago with mine but didnt do any cutting yet

    looking forward to doing this later today i love this mold but this will help it tremendously

    just got finished but i didnt cut on the part still attatched to the rear bumper

    really straight forward and simple just takes a little bit to get the transformation right but on mine i swung the doors closer to his shoulders

    great mod took all of 5 minutes

    To get it EXACTLY like mine, you need to do two things:

    [​IMG]

    File down this part until it looks like as shown. Note there are a couple of tabs on the sides of the arm that need to go too. Basically the support arm needs to be able to nestle in between those two screw posts.

    [​IMG]

    Then file down these tabs, which prevent these arms from being able to rotate 360 degrees until... well, they DO rotate 360 degrees.

    And that's it.

    Here's a few pics of mine with the mod done

    It's DEAD EASY to do. I did it with tools no more sophisticated than a nail clipper and a nail file. (Though I strongly recommend you not be a kludger like me)

    How you transform him varies a bit. In these pics I've got parts overlapped, but that can risk paint scraping if you do it a lot, and you don't HAVE to do it. His backpack can collapse quite nicely and securely without going quite that far.

    Yeah, I'd definitely agree that the overlapping runs a heavy risk of paint scrapping. I still have plans to have some photos of the transformation with the doors tucked in and some comparison shots with an unmodded Sideswipe, but I just hadn't gotten to it yet. Sorry, guys *hides face*
