    Couple general tformers kitbashing questions:

    Hardware: anybody know what size/type hardware is used in these toys?
    Would like to find replacement hardware, preferrably in stainless. Been going through common hardware dimensions, but not finding anything that seems to match exactly.

    Paint: any recommendations on a silver that matches or at least closely approximates the silver Hasbro uses? Recommendations for brand of paints in general? Have various Krylon fusion colors, however they don't make a decent bright silver..

    Primer: necessary? any particularly recommended brand? Simply follow paint manufacturers recommendations?
