    decided to paint sidesipe red to image his g1 character but not any red i am using fords redfire metallic automotive paint which is like a dark red and when it hits the sun it has red glitter flakes in it and gives it a red metallic look. i got his car mode finished this evening and will work on his robot mode this weekend if time permits.

    Looks good so far. I'd change the window tint as blue and red are not good friends. Can't wait to see the robot mode.

    the paint job looks nice. Love the shine. I'm curious why you painted his face red, though.

    ahh gotcha. Just a tip- silly putty or masking tape makes it a lot easier, so you don't have to worry about many layers of paint concealing those really small facial sculpt details on TF heads.
