    Nice job, almost indistinguishable from the originals. Care to share your knowledge for those of us who are in the same boat as you (not me, but I'm sure there are those out there who want to do the same thing)?

    Looks like he just used a mettallic silver Sharpie and colored it. My experience with that pen is that it rubs off too easy. Unlike regular sharpies... ( that don't come in metalic silver )

    as IS said I just covered with tape the parts I did not want colored and just used the marker on it. I used these pens already on a customized a energon strongarm and the marker is still on that.

    Wow, that came out a lot more accurately than I would have thought for a metallic Sharpie. Nice work.

    I'm sure the ink would hold better if it were sprayed with a coat of sealer.

    Do they make gold sharpie markers, because I want to paint my Vector Primes chip. That looks really good by the way.

    Looks good. I certainly can't tell that it's not factory paint.

    I painted the gold border on my Op's force chip, and the masking tape pulled up some of the red paint on the Autobot insignia. :banghead:
