Just some simple paint upgrades anyone can do to bring the look of Rodimus together better since the flames on Hot Rod are gold on the original US Classics version. I just removed the spoiler parts (one screw and 2 pop offs) and painted them in regular ass Krylon brilliant gold. You can pop out the chest flames to get masking tape under them with a screwdriver, toothpick, or whatever, then spray that and the other Protector spoiler parts gold too. Just remember to do a few very thin layers of the gold and hit the parts from all angles. I used 3 layered colors of Krylon fusion to color the blue exhaust/gun flame. If you prefer a more G1 look and don't care about Hot Rod's gold fire, or have the new RTS version of Heated Rod, you can use yellow spray. I got the Autobot emblem water slide decal from FrenzyRumble. Just something easy I thought I'd share.
