RotF Mudflap Mod

i picked up mudflap yesterday and noticed a couple of weird things about the robot mode that i really didnt like. well ill let the pictures do the talking but i have to say now that i did this i love the figure alot more and hes truely right up there with the skids figure now and slightly more movie accurate. i just wish i had confidence to try a hand at a repaint.

bottom of the door supports so that too will allow the pack to rest, you could
experiment with variations of that, I suppose.
yeah sounds good. i cut the tab off behind his head cuz the backpack wouldnt go as low as i wanted it to with it there. im guessing now that if glue or melt a small peice of plastic back on except alittle lower it should be pretty good. thanks man.

and hold really well that way.
To clarify: in this shot (of the original), you cut a notch where the back bumper is hitting the door supports?
