    Well, I got one thing to say, DON'T EVER USE FLOUR, SALT & VINEGAR AS A PASTE AND USE IT ON THE RUST CAUSE IT WILL GO BAD AND CHANGE TO A DIFFERENT COLOUR. I feel like a complete *!@%in fool after reading some threads from other forums and hoping it would work for me. One wing has gone into a more of a red than dull brown as it was before. IF YOU SEE THIS SOLUTION DON'T TRY IT!

    Oh shit, dude.

    Having the part re-chromed is probably going to be your best bet. There are some folks in the kitbashing forum that may be able suggest a good re-chroming website or service.

    Well if the rumors are true, I am leaning more towards wishful thinking, this guy might get reissued by Takara. So, You might have a crack at a new one with sparkling gold pieces.

    well, that rumor died along time ago. The photo was from Botcon Japan 2000. Seibertron should really check into things before they front page news because everyone got their hopes up and missed the heart breaking post lol.

    here are some more photos of mine. I guess you could rub the paint off and repaint it yourself if you don't mind. Some Paint Thinner might work? I dunno, 458 is a lot of money for a Deszaras you still have to work on, i'd be pissed
