    Not much for me to say here, except that I wanted to give G2 sideswipe a try for some time, and the MP version is the perfect candidate, originally I had planned to paint the windshields in neon green like the head lights and spoilers like some customs I saw in the past, but opted to leave them clear instead, kind of like the original toy, still I feel kind of torn, so I was hoping for a little input, what do you guys think should I give the green windshields a try or "don't fix what ain't broken"? LOL. thanks for looking everyone! :)

    looks clean... I think you should spray a green pearl on the windows. They way they are still transparent but have a nice green sparkle.

    Wow, is that some gradient action I see in the neon green? Props to anyone that can take a paint brush/knife to brand new relatively expensive figure. Looks like you got the skill do try a candy green on the windows. Got any shots from the rear in Lambo mode?

    Beautiful. I would tint the windows instead of painting them an opaque color. Maybe red or green.

    Holy shit dude this is great :) 


    Also, I've thought about red or green windows too, but I always feared it might ruin some of the realism.

    Looks sick as is. Don't try fix what ain't broke. I never have great luck with window painting but at the same time my skill level doesn't compare to your gorgeous work. I really dig G2 Swipe and yours hits the spot.

    EPIC! Right when I'm in a G2 mood! Hasbro should focus more on doing stuff like this, since they've covered most of the classic G1 stuff. By the way, a coat of transclearent green on the windows is the way to go!

    I think windshield needs to go untouched, to much neon green and it'll be distracting. What I DO think it needs is a black stripe boarding the edge of the spoiler, or something that says "SIDESWIPE" like the original toy I think had.

    damn, that be pretty. XD
    I'd say a light coat of clear green, or not at all. it already looks pretty damn awesome as is.
    ... although I wonder if painting on SS would be too much. =______= I kinda like im this way...
