    Well, he's done.
    I went with a mix of MP for some of the color placement and some of my own ideas.
    The pin-striping was meant to accentuate the carved detailing on the trailer.
    I really like how the gradating came out. More interesting to me than flat oranges and reds.
    Anyway, less words and more pics:

    Crap, I forgot to paint inside the arms. Gotta fix that now.

    The pipes line up better. I just moved them by accident and didn't notice.

    Awesome work:bay .

    From the picture I cant tell if you fixed TR Hotrod to leave his hood down or you just left it down?

    Down. I modded the front of the car so the hood hangs down in bot mode. I wasn't a fan of the skinny ab area.

    Yeah I didnt like that either so I leave it down. How did you mod it? Did I miss that in one of your other radicon threads?

    Sanded into the ab area a bit, and sanded out the intake vents under the front of the car in a rounded shape to allow the ab area to fit inside it.
    Leaving the front down leaves big gaps in the side of the torso previously filled with the front piece. I added styrene strips inside the frame to compensate.
    Here's a good look at how the added pieces fill the chest area:

    Ah I see,did you mod the TR Deluxe Hotrod the same way or did you just leave his hood area down as well?

    Same way. I did Hot Rod first, so it helped me perfect the mod on Rodimus.

    Great work!

    The arm length works better for your custom than on the deluxe.
