    After my http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/404629-restoration-dotm-roadbuster.html I did another restoration.

    For Roadbuster I got a LOT of uncool Messages as PM and E-Mail what I'm thinkin gabout to Customize a Custom.

    Let me tell to these Guys: I only Bought them, CAUSE they where sloppy painted! So they where Cheaper than the Major releases, that's the only reason! And what I did with my Figures (If Custom or not, is not necessary) is only my thing! So please be cool, nobody get harmed when I paint anothers Custom!

    BTT:

    I got Jolt heavy Damaged (Windows got in contact with a agressive unnown liquid. maybe superglue or brushcleaner) amd the Blue was a bad choice on this mold. So I cleaned up the entire Altmode (Botmode was not painted - I thank god for that) and Chromed the Windows, repanted the enire Car in a slightly different Coloursheme

    Hope you like it. Here are the History of my work;

    It wasn't done well but I do like the look of the blue version. Was there any robot photos of it?

    I liked the blue color too, but it reminds me too much of a Toyota Prius. But the rescue job was still much needed - particularly those poor, beaten windows.

    Seems like a lost cause to me, man. I'd have bit the bullet and tried this on a fresh one..

    If a person pays money for a custom or whatever, after that person obtains ownership of said item, it's theirs to do with as they wish. Personally, I can see why you repainted it. Honestly, I've done the same with other things I've gotten from others that were in FAR worse shape.

    I agree that you would have probably been better off just buying a new one, but again, you certainly have the freedom to make that choice or not :thumb

    A lost cause is something that can't be improved or saved. He's saying that there was no point in attempting to improve the figure. I think it's not too bad an improvement.

    Thx guys, The Major Point is, that i didn't Know The exact Status of The Figure, And Yes repainting a new One is easier And better, but i wanted The challenge to Test myself.

    I Know that most of you dislike what i did here, And its okay, but please understand my intentions, Thank you :)
