    So I have an original issue henkei rodimus. I love this toy. He's one of my favorites and traveled around with me alot after I got him. Took him where I would go so I could fiddle with him. Then the protector set came out and he became one of my favorite figures in my collection!

    Only problem is during that time some of his headlight chrome has begun to rub and scratch off. So I ask is there any way to restore it? Is there some chrome gold paint I could find somewhere to restore this with?

    Thanks guys.

    If you have an airbrush, you can use Alclad, then go over it with a clear yellow to get the gold effect.
