    just curious -when fixing up joes, what type of tool do you guys use to pull the o-ring down when you're going to hook it up to the t-hook?

    I just squeeze the o ring place th waist on top and use my screwdriver to pull it the rest of the way through.

    Oh, so you attach it to the t-hook, put the waist on, and then hook it to the upper body. I've been doing it backwards...

    I would be carful doing it this way. I have found it best to put the waist and legs together, squeeze the o-ring down into the t-hook area and then use a little flat tip screw driver to get it in the hook. Doing it the way you've mentioned above has led to a few "crotch" pieces flying across the room and a really nasty feeling in the pit of my stomach.

    I've actually done this with success. A warning about Storm Shadow: the red emblem with become bright pink.

    I went to sally's beauty supply and purchased the 40% peroxide (i forget what they call it, just look for the big 40%) and then I got some oxy clean. You mix the two together and put it in a clear container and set it out in the sun for 8 hours and you'd be amazed at the results. I forget the ratio of oxy to peroxide but if you go over to the hisstank forum i think they have it. If not the computer geeks use a similar technique to whiten the computer plastics. Just run a google search.

    A bit of info to help restore Joes

    Hey Guys,
    Recently I noticed you can color over the shoulder and elbow rivets with a Sharpie- it doesn't seem to rub off, either. Obviously a drop of lacquer would be a safe bet.
    Sharpie has REALLY expanded their color palette too, so odds are you'll find something that works!

    It has been about a year since I have ordered decals for j ruben. Is he still producing them? The contact I have is [email protected] does anybody know if this is still correct? Thanks guys.
