    So for my stop motion series I want a 2 year time jump between season 1 and 2. I wanted to make the autobot cast have a different look. In the case of Hot Rod I was using titan returns Hot Rod. He is the tallest deluxe Hot Rod and for season 2 I wanted Hot Rod to be the same height. I saw my TLK Deluxe Hot Rod and I went ahead to see if the head would fit. So i repainted some bits and added other bits.

    It's still a work in progress. While the exhaust pipes don't make sense because the engine is in the back but Hot Rod needs his pipes! I want to mold the front of the pipes to go into the car. I'm thinking about adding a spoiler but I don't know. I still have to repaint the head a different shade of red and finish painting the trim of the car.

    I've been waiting for a G1 colored Hot Rod. TLK Hot Rod looks cool, but didn't exactly look like Hot Rod.

    I was thinking about doing a full repaint. But I'm not good at that. Im best at painting little details. Once I get better tools and equipment then I might get another TLK Hot Rod and give it a full G1 treatment.

    Another part for G1-ifing this mold, if you get around to it, is that the way the back transforms you could fit a larger spoiler to his vehicle mode to give him his wings.

    I was thinking about doing that. I'm also thinking of replacing the pipes with TR Hot Rods Pipes. Once I'm done with the first season he's going to become a parts figure. I'll keep this thread updated.

    Update. The exhaust pipes broke off when I was fixing them. When I'm done with season 1 I'm taking the pipes and spoiler off of TR Hot Rod and putting it on him.
