New Arm Modification For Alternators Rumble (From Skids Legs!)

Figured I post this new arm mod for Rumble/Frenzy since I've been just pumping out Alt Customs these last few days.

This one came to me after I recieved KO Alt Prowl, mainly bought for the head for Alt Ratchet and arms to use on Rumble. Problem is I have a Rumble and a Frenzy but only one set of arms. So I get to looking at my junker Skids with no arms and I take his legs apart. I also have 2 extra Jeep hands from my Inferno and Grapple customs. With a little dremeling, some glue and paint I now have a pretty nice set of removable arms for Rumble (or as I like to call the red one, Frenzy )

Here are some pics to show what I did



I had to dremel this nob down a bit on the top and around the circle to get Swindle's hands to fit

Here's the peg that held the foot on grinded down and glued to the base if the arm

I also grinded down the hole on the hand to fit the joint

one arm

two arms

oh look at this he can hold his gun, with no modification and it stays in better than most Alternators guns do

and 2 guns

easily removed

and attached to the real Rumble

I'm starting to wonder if I should go to my local Fry's and pick up a few more Skids. He's the only Alt still around but they are selling him for $24.99

No it's actually Testers Modelmaster Acrylics. I was surprised at how smoothly it can out being that I used a brush and if I remember only one coat, maybe two
