Hope I don't come off sounding like too much of a newbie by asking this, but, after having screwed up so royally in the past trying to fix my old Transformers, I figure I'd better ask the professionals: 1. Pin removal. I read a "how to" guide on this in the forum which involved the old "nail trick", but I have a more complicated question: how do you remove pins when there's only an opening on one end? For example, if I had a G1 Powerglide whose wing snapped in half, how would I go about extracting the metal pin in order to replace it? I'm personally trying to repair a G1 Blitzwing, but the overall problem is similar. 2. Stenciling. I'm trying to restore the "26 Citanes" on the legs of an old junker G1 Mirage of mine. The paint was pretty faded to begin with, and, after doing damage control for two previous screw ups, it's in even worse shape. What would be the best way to repaint this and with what paint? I was thinking of creating a custom stencil on a sticker, cutting around the edges with an Exacto knife, applying it over the part, and then using spray paint over the unprotected parts. Is this a good idea or is there an easier solution that brings better results? 3. Rechroming. I'm trying to repaint a rather rare Slag variant, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do so because several of the parts with chrome wear are glued to other pieces and won't come off. Also, while I have no intention of reselling the figure, I'm hesitant to apply black primer to the worn parts because I don't want to ruin them any more than they already are by making them look "fake". Can I just spray chrome over it? Also, what kind of chrome would any of you recommend? I have a good idea what to use for the silver one, but the gold one has me at a loss... Any help and/or suggestions would be welcome. Thanks in advance!
