    Hi all , first time posting but i have browsed through alot of great works here. I've finally decided to try my first bash and I would really appreciate any help and ideas. I've always liked the R.I.D prowl car mode but not a great fan of the bot mode so i want to use the classic hotrod and make it into red alert. Any suggestions? Thanx

    tape, paint, and paitence.

    If it's a first time repait, do something easy. Going from red to white will be hard. You'll have to prime it and then white coat it. You'll also need to get a light bar.

    But pretty much, like I said, time and paitence.

    I think a Hotrod to Red Alert is a great first bash to try out.

    Its small enough that you won't get overwhelmed and want to quit.

    Just take your time and watch your parts like a hawk. You may want to look into getting some reprolabels for G1 Red Alert, those may work well for your repaint.

    Goodluck
