    Opening up a DAM body.

    Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone can tell me how to open up the chest of a DAM body to remove the neck peg without breaking the any crucial parts. Yes I did remove the screws in the back but still couldn't get it to open up lol. Thanks for any help.


    Edit: Another issue I'm having is with the ankle peg joint on the lower leg of a KP-03 body. It seems that if I look at them wrong they fall off. My first thought was to use some teflon tape on them but I'm not sure if they'd fit into the joint if I did that. Any advice is very welcome, thanks again.

    For the ankle pegs I usually apply a few coats of nail polish. You can also use on the dam body arm joints where they join the shoulder/torso as well, as the arms are often a bit loose on the dam bodies. For the torso they usually have a thin layer of glue on the seams joining the two halves, so you may need something thin to work them apart.
