    Hey there,

    So I had an extra Windcharger and decided to give him the G1 treatment. He's not done yet, still working on it but here's a few pics. I suck at painting so be gentle with me.. haha.

    For the hood, I'm trying to go for a Carbon Fiber look...

    Ot looks good but I would keep the vehicle mode red and black. I don't think the carbon fiber look is going to work.

    The only thing I can agree with is making the arms red. Making the chest silver makes the car's color inaccurate.

    Interesting idea...

    IMO... I'd have done a small compromise here... sacrifice some G1 accuracy while still offering a paint job that works in alt mode.

    Kinda like this Mustang you see below.

    Painting the arms is a good idea for certain.

    It looks good, but I'd like to see the alt. mode. I would have done the upper arms and feet red too. But nice idea, I'm working on something simliar, but didn't want to do the hood red.
