    Hello all,

    Im doing a paint job on DOTM Sideswipe, and Im really torn as to my finishing step.

    The DOTM Sideswipe has the Front of the car as his chest.
    But most of the pics I find for research show the BACK of his car as his chest..

    I really like the red look on his chest for the tailights. But then the car mode will have...RED headlights, and the paint job on the car has turned out kickass.. SO im REALLY torn.

    Just hoping to get a few thoughts from you guys as to what would be the best sacrifice in your opinion, OR if anyone has seen any DOTM Screen caps, I cant find any with DOTM sideswipe from the front.

    You must cure your dilemma with red LEDs behind the clear plastic. Then switch on for bot mode.

    That's what I'm doing anyway!

    Well, there's always the idea of making his boob lights blue (maybe a very light blue that's like 90% white). That way, you'll get an appropriate effect in vehicle mode, as well as a way to make em stand out in bot mode.
