  1. I really need some clarification on IPMS's Out Of The Box rules. A - For my first question, you can see there is OK bolt detail on this frame, the problem is, there is a lot of filling and sanding that will need to be done in this area to correct the frame and what little bit of detail there is will be lost. What I am asking; can those bolt heads be sanded off, and after all the filling and sanding is done, be replaced with new bolt heads using plastic hex rod? B - This question is similar to my first, except this time, the bolts are just a lump with no hex detail. Can those be sanded off and be replaced with new bolt heads using plastic hex rod? C - According to IPMS rules, I'm assuming it will be OK to drill out holes like the one pictured? Correct me if I'm wrong, but this would also hold true for bed pocket holes and finger holes on molded in door handles? D - Those long round lumps on this timing chain cover are suppose to represent fins, these so called fins should be square and not rounded. Can they be sanded and replaced with correct fins, if not, could they be sanded off and left smooth even though the directions do show fins? E - As you can see, there are no individual leaf spring detail and the band that would hold these leafs together is very faint. Can those individual springs be carved in and can the bands be replaced with thin sheet plastic? Thank you in advance, Marcus M. Jones
