This is certainly nothing special, but last night I decided I wanted yellow stripes on one of my Universe Ironhides... for detail (break up some 'o that red!) and a little more G1 homage. Anyway, I didn't have any yellow paint available and have limited funds... what I DID have laying around though was basic yellow electric tape. I think it worked just fine (or at least better than I expected)... and obviously it was very simple. I just applied the tape in vehicle mode, trimmed to size and then CAREFULLY cut into the grooves of his different panels, so the tape could seperate with the rest of him while transforming. On a side note, most hardware stores have a variety of different colored elec. tape to use on other projects if need be... red (ironically about the same shade as Universe Sideswipe), green, blue, white, orange... and of course good 'ol black. Anyway, thought maybe this could come in handy for anyone wanting stripes, but not having paint OR not WANTING to paint! Oh, and the alt. mode pics are kinda blurry... my apologies, but you get the jist of the stripe just fine regardless //peace.
