    \r\n I read through most of these threads, great information! One question I saw asked, and one that I had myself, what is a suitable adhevise to reapply original stickers? I have a few that have dried up and fallen off. Rather than buying repros, I would like to clean these up and reapply them.\r\n

    I use water based white glue like Elmers so that it will be easy to remove again if needed. But they do not stick great. I too want something better.\r\n

    Buy them from smalljoes.com or gijoeheaven.com
    \n
    \nI tried to buy them myself at a hardware store and they were more expensive and harder to find the quantity then just buying them online.\r\n

    \r\n Repairing swivel arm battle grip and straight arm\r\n

    \r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n So, I came up with another effective way to fix swivel arm and straight elbow joints.
    \n
    \nI went to a sewing store and purchased the smallest gage of clear nylon thread that they sell. . .I guess it\'s used for quilt making. It works great!
    \n
    \nI just cut off about a 4in strand, put the swivel joint in the middle of the thread. Then, criss-cross the ends once, and then tie a double knot (or square knot). Whola! You\'re done. Sometimes the joint is still loose, so, just wrap them to the back side of the arm and tie another double knot. The same procedure works for the straight arm elbows too, just go slow and make sure the thread is following in the groove.
    \n
    \nOnce the joint seems tight enough (only test it once the knot is tied, otherwise it will come unravelled), I use a pair of fingernail clippers to cut off the ends close to the figure. Sometimes I need to use a blade to tuck the string in the joint, but usually not.
    \n
    \nHope this helps.\r\n

    Try pressing on the front a little while squeezing the sides where the dent is.This worked for mine.
    \r\nHope this helps\r\n

    \r\n what i do is and it works with almost 100% of cases
    \n
    \ni take a flat head screwdriver probably not going to find the right size so i file down i slightly larger one to make it fit just right from side ti side
    \n
    \ni lay the figure face down on the floor yeah i know viper pilot
    \n i press the driver in to screw with as much force as i can and slowly turn the screw sometimes this doesnt work, sometimes youll actually need to gently tap the driver with a hammer or something usually that will dislodge it enough for you to hand turn it
    \n
    \ni tell you its will take awhile to get used to id master it on other figures first but once you have it figured out and stripped screw will never be a problem
    \n
    \nive only had one not come out i eventually just poked holes around the screw and essentially broke the back peice on purpose and just replaced it with another, but i have to say i seriously doubt youll ever have to do that
    \n
    \nlet meknow how that works\r\n

    \r\n Has anyone ever found a way to repair broken waist-pieces (crotches)? I think there was a customizer named "Evilface" or somethin\' like that who had figured up a way to fix them... but his method was, of course, sculpting a new one from epoxy putty. I have tried but once to do such a thing. It worked, but it didn\'t look pretty... epoxy putty is such a fickle medium to have to use. It seems to me one has to be pretty masterful to get a good effect.
    \n
    \nI guess I shall try again and hone my craft...
    \n
    \nAnd I\'m sure that by this point everyone has noticed the regularity of crotch/waist-pieces being broken in Dusty, Lifeline, and Duke v1 figures...\r\n

    If the cross on the head is "holed" You have to make one thing. Tak a flat scredriver with the edge equal or a little bigger that the diameter of the screw. And the You have gently but firmly turn it around in that hole, scrapping metal deeper and deeper, just to the bottom of the head of the screw. In one moment the head fall off releasing the torso halves. Then the only thing is to take the pliers and gently turn out the rest of the screw out the hole. I tell You this is fully tested method, totally unharmful for the condition of the figures. If You are mastered in that You may use precise grinder but screwdriver is better anyway.\r\n

    Look around at some of the customs boards. I\'m not entirely sure you can reattach a broken thumb (Sorry about that, Grunt. ) but I have seen sculpey and epoxy thumb prosthetics for Joes and Indiana Jones figures.
    \nWe may even have a few threads on this board, but I haven\'t checked yet.\r\n

    \r\n O-ring replacement!\r\n

    \r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n If the o-ring comes from figure that was glued there is no need to boiling that and (and the end) put it apart. There is one smart move. You know that standard o-ring is size 3/4 inch, the same as tap seal, you may get at home depo or shop like that. If it comes to glued torso You have to buy 1/2 inch seal (a little bigger). You will not hook it for the hook (forgive my any language mistakes) but the rubber will hold legs directly by the straight piece between legs. One "end" You hook beneath that piece (between legs) and to the second one You attach thin fishing line and with its help You are searching your way over the piece connecting both pieces of torso, thru mechanism (for Ninja Force). Then You pull it out on the other side and strecht the rubber. You are finishin the movment with the same step as at the beggining. It\'s easier to say that to do that but the new o-ring holds excellent, believe me. If that\'s unclear in any way I may send You a photo with repaired figure. If You have any other problems just write me. I have big experience in repairing figures and vehicles and have detailed guide made by myself.\r\n

    \r\n Any good suggestions for removing the hats from Gung Ho v2 or Shipwreck v1? I of course have thought of using hot water, or of carving out the head, but thought I would see if anyone had another method.\r\n

    \r\n GH\'s dress blues hat is just glued on; it\'s not part of the mold. (It looks like he has unpainted hair underneath, so not that attractive.) Mine simply came off when the figure fell onto a hard surface back around 1990, so I treat it like a removable accessory.

    \nHot water might work, or you might try just pulling on it.\r\n

    \r\n I\'ve seen the question asked quite a few times, but I\'ve never found the answer: What size are the torso screws in a 3 3/4" Joe?
    \r\n
    \r\nI know that the screws are 1/4" stainless steel, pan-headed sheet metal screws, but I can\'t tell the diameter. If I measure in metric, they look like #2 screws and if I measure in inches, they look like #3. Short of buying a micrometer, does anyone know where I could find this out?\r\n

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

    \r\n Hey Guys,
    \nRecently 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.
    \nSharpie has REALLY expanded their color palette too, so odds are you\'ll find something that works!\r\n

      I'm a MOC collector and one of my MOCs has a small dent on the upper right hand corner. Does anyone know how to pop it right back out?
