    I hated how bad classics ironhide looked, with the orange red paint and blue face so I changed all that. also repainted the dull gray paint with chrome paint(doesnt relfect anymore) and well you will see for yourselves. I like the alternate robot mode better with the wheels down. Oh and his left hand snapped in half somehow during transformation. fixed it, but does not go down all the way.

    ^^^just leave the wheels in place, that's all there is to it.

    the red looks good. Personally, I swapped the bumper on the back and the bullbar on the front with ratchet so they're red on ironhide which is more real world accurate.

    I like the red. As for the transformation. I leave the wheels down and bumper up. I don't like how his crotch hangs low (insert dirty joke here) with the bumper down. I don't mind him looking down.

    I really dig this, man! I'm a huge Ironhide fan and the colors and paintjob are perfect. I also keep the wheels down on him in bot mode so that he can actually SEE what he's doing. lol

    Great job!

    I was thinkin of adding some kind of damage detailing to him since ol' ironhide is a war vet, like cheap cover ups for some kind of injury eh dont know...
