    Had an extra First Edition Cliffjumper, repainted it black, then suddenly Vin Diesel came to my head, so I put on some chromed mini engine on the hood, ehehe! Now I have to think of the bot mode once the paint cures and fix the other red plastic

    update:
    trimmed down the engine, its very hard when you have no tools, i just used a paper cutter to trim this thing :)  i needed to put it back a little for transformation, now i need to find a head... the visible reds will or might disappear once i start the bot mode paint aps :)

    update #2
    wasn't able to find a head so this will have to do, i won't display him in bot mode anyway :)

    It's not bad looking at all. As a car guy I'd trim off some of the chrome engine so it sits more flush with the hood of the car (and get rid of the exhaust which is coming off the header entirely). For cars with the blower sticking through the hood you mostly only see the top part of the intake (the part that sits right below the tunnel ram portion).

    Overall this looks pretty great though, especially if you can get that engine sitting right!

    I agree with this here.

    And add to that, I think that the "Cyberfire" BB (EvilBee/DevilBee) head would look better on the body than the Animated version.

    This is actually a really clever repaint.

    I like this! I've been working on something similar, but painted white like in Vanishing Point.

    Beautiful!
    You should go to your local walmart and pick up a cheap $15ish dremel to save yourself some time! But you did an excellent job!

    Dig it bud. We need more custom rod alt modes with all the autos floating around. Really like the black on him, and loving the chrome blower, but yeah it needs to basically only peek over the hood. Gonna use this mold in white with a Classics BB head (if its not too fat) to make an updated Trip Up from the Hot Rod Patrol myself. Keep it up!

    thanks for the tips!

    i live in a province in the Philippines bro, there are no specialty tools available here so i just use what's available :( 

    ahaha! thanks!
