    So I finally got around to fixing my Masterpiece Thundercracker. It was easier then I expected. I simply used a 1/16th tap with a tac hammer to push the pins out and properly install the intakes.

    If you attempt this make sure to knock out the pins from the outside. Meaning you should be hammering on the outside of TC pushing the pin towards TCs center. Also you will need to brace the inside piece of plastic that the pin is coming out of.

    Check out his boobies. They point out on your fig I bet (unless it's been fixed). Notice how the pic below has them point in.

    Saggy intakes or Plastic Surgery intakes.....

    I am terrified of attempting this fix myself. I just know I would manage to snap of both legs and an arm somehow.
