    I remember seeing somebody on here did a mod on the RTS lugnut that lets the fingers move independently I can see where you are supposed to cut. But what I want to know is how do you remove the pin the hold the fingers together at the knuckle do I just cut through it??

    arghhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i dont believe this just happened... I was trimming away the plastic around the pins on the other hand. I brought in my tin snips after exposing the pin on the knuckle. I was just going to clip it like I did on the first one and BAM the damn fingers exploded!!! FORTUNEATLY the pieces are big enough that I should be able to repair it with minimal evidence. At least untill I can get a replacement... :( (

    Ugh, should have took the pins out, and then cut them in two. Hind sight is always 20/20.

    But yea I tried that and the pins would not come out at all. So I guess I lucked out on the one hand and my luck ran out on the other LOL. Well I pre-ordered another one from BBTS. So at least I will have parts if I need them..

    The way that I did it for my Lugnut (was probably me who you saw did it) was just to saw through the hand, lay the hand flat so that it cuts in a straight line and that way the pins and the fingers are cut at the same time. I used a hack saw and went slowly with it so as not to cause severe damage.

    I'm just waiting on getting my hand on another one and I'll have pictures showing what I mean.

    im gonna be doing this mod for sure im gonna use a jewlers saw or hack saw. I usually fix the hack saw blade and "rub" the part across it where im cutting just moving the part instead of the saw. ill be painting my lugnut and giving him custom bombs and guns. dunno if want origonal colours or atomic lugnut colours or go for realistic I dunno hes so awsome lol
