    what we did here was strip the chrome off from Henkei Hot-Shot's guns, then cut a slot in Universe Hot-Shots bumper that matches the Henkei's version so the guns can store underneeth. we also got tired of Jolt not being able to stand so we added feet stands which doesnt alter transformation at all and fold up in coptor mode

    I like it. Great work on rehabilitating Jolt; that little turd needed the help. Though I think Universe Hotshot is superior to Armada Hotshot I prefer Armada Jolt to the current one.

    the natural plastic under the chrome looks pretty nice. How'd you strip the chrome off anyway?

    Nice mods, bud :thumb 

    Wow, I couldn't agree with you more on this! I was SO disappointed that the Universe Jolt was so sub par in comparison with the Armada Jolt.

    The unchromed guns look a lot better in my opinion. Nice mods. :)

    i stripped the chrome by soaking the guns in rubbing alcohol for 2 days then scrubbing the rest off with a old tooth brush. the bumper mod and jolt mod were done by my buddy Matt. and yes it looks soooooooooooo much better

    great job, I have allot of gripes about this mold, I barely even looked jolts way : / (he feels like hes made of recycled plastic)

    how did the guns fare in the alchohal bath?? i only used alchohal bath once and it took a good couple milimetres of mass off each part.

    the way i use to strip paint and chrome is nail polish remover, it wont melt your plastic!

    Heh heh. Don't be so sure. I once soaked a Bionicle mask in a mason jar full of nail polish remover for two days. When I took it out, well..... remember that scene in Mrs. Doubtfire when the mask falls out the window and gets run over by the truck....? XD
