Hi I lately had issues with a doll that caught rust, and came up up with a mod by inserting a ping-pong rubber ball with stick then backing out leaving the new water ball inside her, one leg had snapped over rust,then did bolt/joint/washer/nut redo at leg and hip area through a cut in vagina avoiding outer hip repair. Lots of time in it but did not want to junk the doll. Time went by and the 2nd leg snapped after new "strokn sadie sleeve" installed in vagina. Redid #2 leg same method through vagina cut and rebolted
again, however this mod only allows up/down movement not sideways at hips/upper legs. Lately we had issues remelting toy material into doll and noticed it was a lighter shade. I always wanted her to have AAA-AA breasts, so I found a way to cut lower and side breasts still leaving upper portion attached/uncut
and thinned alot of her Tpe out. It was like my solder gun was double strength when remelting her same
material in & around vagina areas for the new sleeve. We overlapped a few times around upper thigh legs
hard to avoid when doing this, I always need alot of mineral oil when sculpting/melting, I found another neat new technique, when one has lost alot of hope and wanting to reshape upper inner legs, a small travel style iron the kind sometimes with foreign plugs and way small than household iron, probably want
with stick free coating? I was then able to shape upper inner legs great with out a narrow solder heat iron.
The breasts were glued Tpe glue and remelt with narrow solder tip, grafting very little at a time, then the outer boob lines w/o the tip. Just ideas don't want anyone to mess their doll up, but I didn't want to junk
her after 2 years. Sleeves can also be bought longer @DC-Dollhouse at some of their locations online.
