    So by simply turning Jazz eyepiece into a visor that alone created a drastic difference in the face. Cut out slots for new eyes, added the sensor on his head (styrene) and "shaved" his goatee. I will fill in the eyes and add another small bit of styrene to fill in the forehead sensor.

    If you look at Hot Rods first appearance in the 86 movie, he was much brighter than how the toy was produced. Almost a magenta rather than orange. I went with that look for something a lil different, plus I think it fits in well with the bright and playful aesthetic of Animated.
