Shortening MG Gouf's neck?

Shortening MG Gouf's neck?

Post by Crowmooni » Wed, 08 Aug 2001 02:58:49



I was looking at my MG Gouf earlier today and I noticed that the space
between the shoulders and the head makes it look unsightly and takes away
much of the menace. Question: How do I shorten the Gouf's neck to give it
that classic no-neck appearance Zeon MS have?

Sorry if this posts twice. My computer sucks. -.-

I was looking at my MG Gouf and I realized the immense space between its
neck and shoulders look horrible. Can anyone please tell me how to shorten
the neck so it can achieve that stiff neck Zaku look? ^^

one of the smartest things i ever heard was "the thing that sucks about love is
that you can choose who you love, but not who loves you back."

Looking at my MG Gouf custom kit, I think you have two ways to do that.
One is to shorten the ball joint and neck piece.  Cut the joint from the
bottom, shorten it a little, and glue it back on.  Use metal rod inside
to add strength.  You will need a pin-vice, drill bit, and brass or
aluminum pipe.  The other is to relocate the socket.  Remove some
plastic from the bottom of the camera unit so that the socket can sit
higher.  Insert a spacer at the bottom of each U shaped area where the
socket should go.  You will need a knife or small chisel, and s***
piece of plastic from the runner or a Evergreen plastic sheet.  In
either way, I think you can omit the neck part.
