I wanted to get rid of his huge chest flap. It works well as a back on [Side]swipe and Red Alert, but I thought it hung too low and hindered his waist articulation; also, it made it look like he had no waist.
Run a knife along the seam where the windshield meets the roof. Repeat this same process to the side windows, and to the underside. After a few minutes of light scoring, itís easily popped apart. Glue the windshield to the hood (where it attaches for car mode).
[IT] STILL TRANSFORMS PERFECTLY!
In my opinion, gives [this toy] a more G1 Sunstreaker look.
The end product, looks like this:
Since the two pieces are the same shape on the cut line, the windshield can be tucked under the roof/chest. It holds by friction - when you slide it in, it centers itself. Now, you have an even more "accurate" Sunstreaker!
AND YOU CAN STILL ATTACH HIS VENTS!
(In the project thread, a few notable things transpired through discussion. The results are posted here for further resourcing! ~Superquad7)
I swapped out shoulders from Sunny with Red Alert and built tw0 (2) slide rails out of styrene.
WARNING! Donít use too much glue on inside of windshield, or this will happen:
Nothing a little paint wonít fix!
Extra steps in transformation:
1 - Start to bend legs back
2 - Slide windshield forward
3 - Raise the roof
4 - Slide windshield back
5 - Lower roof onto windshield
Lamborghini molds [are] now looking more and more different:
