    Like Skids and Mudflap, looking back at my Sideswipe made me want to go for Movie accuracy. With the movie, superquad7's suggestion of light coats (although i think he was talking about applying light coats of paint to keep it on) and a comment on my vid for Sideswipe stating "This looks like a piece of shit. Anybody can put gold paint on something and call it a custom" (i deleted it, because my cousin watches my Custom vids), i got to work.

    Although i went with plain silver, it looks glossy to me, which is weird since i use acrylics.

    Here he is with the Twins, doing a kickass action pose, and their vehicle modes in front of my ROTF Superion.

    Look pretty good man.
    It's strange how the silver paint you used makes it look more silver then the factory
    silver.

    I know! when i use silver in my customs, i always mix it with black to add a metallic look. This is the first real piece i've done with the silver not being mixed, and i'm lovin' it!
