    Which Color scheme looks best for my upcoming attempt at
    turning Mudflap into Brawn?

    Of course minus the luggage rack, and I may try to put a spare tire
    on his hatch, if I can find something to make it out of. But I do want
    him to have the silver grille (like Brawn) so that is common on all pics.

    #1) Green over Orange (this way I can get his chest to look like G1

    #2) Orange over Green

    #3) all Green, the pics looks two tone green, I could do it that way
    or all one shade of Green

    #4) is actually Green over Grey, I know it didn't come up
    as looking much of a shade of grey. Somewhat Brawn looking I suppose.

    I Think it could work, but you would need to use Skids BIG arm,
    remember Brawn is a Power Houseeee! lol
    but i think #1 colors work!
    good luck:thumb

    i like the first and last ideas but the first one would leave you with the right colored chest. If you can get both big arms on him it'd be sweet too

    Definately #1
    Do the big arm mod and you've gotta do a head swap also.

    I'd say #1 - but don't know if the dual-arm mod'll work or not...

    If it can - awesome, but if not... no big...

    I had the same Idea, from the first time I saw this one.

    the green- grey looks nice but the green makes this look like a bit army vehicle.

    I can't afford to buy an extra Mudflap just for an arm swap, and I don't
    have any parts bots lying around for a head, although I deduced that
    Classics Mirage has a good sized head for the job.

    but pretty much you guys are picking the color choice I was leaning for,
    thanks for the feedback.

    Can't you remove the big arm from Skids and give it to Mudflap in order to make a Skids with 2 normal arms and a Mudflap with 2 big arms?

    That's the route that I would take, if he can still transform with 2 big arms.

    green over orange makes it look like a classic "Woody"

    Woody's are a pacific coast kinda thing that surfers used to really dig.

    and the vehicles are called Woodys because they used to be largely made out of wood with a metal frame.

    I voted for #1, but i think i personally would prefer to see a slightly brown-ish orange.

    I only have one Skids and he is being done in G1 colors, and I don't think
    either one could transform with 2 big arms, the way they fold up inside
    the body.

    but the darker Orange could work, and yeah it kind of does look like a Woody.

    I was messin around with my twins and found that its pretty simple to double up on big arms, a little cutting is required but nothing hard, I think I'm going to do this too lol now to decide on which head to use

    I definitely like the green-over-gray, with brown/orange robot parts (amongst the steel or black robotic-looking components) This is a good idea. Curious to see how you make the various mods work. :)

    Hi Shadowfall,

    I'm considering doing a Brawn repaint too; here's a WIP digibash of what I've come up with so far. Hope it can inspire or help you out when you're doing yours! :)

    I've got him already almost done, I sprayed the car body today, just have to
    let him cure and light sand out any rough spots. I've almost finished the bot
    parts, probably won't get back to him until Monday, but he's looking good
    my two tone painting skills are really rusty but a little sanding and he'll be fine
    to touch him up won't be a problem.

    And actually now that the Mirage head is painted silver it looks good on top
    of the bot parts, just have to see how it looks when he's back together. I
    have to remove the red paint from the tail lights, and do final detail work
    when he's together, then I will gloss coat the entire alt mode, like I did Skids.

    I managed to swap Mudflaps big arm on to Skidz, and with a little bit of jiggling it transforms just fine. I would assume it would woke fine vice versa, as Mudflap has the Biggest big arm of the two.
