    Well this has been my first alteration on any Transformer toy i have bought in lets say the least of 5 years. i didnt do much but i took my Alternators Optimus Prime and took the head lights off and painted the chrome backing on them black and also took the tail lights and painted the silver bezel black.

    Sorry i know the pics are crap. but thats a camera phone for you. I do plan to paint the hood scoop on the truck and see how that turns out and remove all the badging from the sides and rear of the truck (DODGE SRT-10...yada yada) ill post better pics hopefully when its all completed

    It's really hard to tell the effect of your alteration from those pictures, hopefully we'll see better pictures soon :)

    Crappy pictures, yes. But I CAN see the effect on the headlights, and it's quite nice. The taillights, I can't quite see.

    well folks i do apologize about the pictures. However, i will get more up as soon as i paint the hood scoop and remove the lettering from the truck. I did paint the Wheels black last night and will have the pics up soon. I do also plan to paint his Gray underbody torso piece black or blue as well i have not decided yet.

    i painted the chrome backing of the headlights to set off the black/red look a little more. plus the truck just looks meaner....

    the clear plastic cover comes off and you can still paint the chrome backing.
