Modify Lego Pieces




Legos have been around forever. Every kid loves creating things with these building bricks. Butt what is the most frustrating thing about legos? When you are missing the correct piece and you have to scrap what you are building.

Step 1: Tools



120 & 400 grit sand paper

Super glue(when combining pieces)

Step 2:

On a piece of graph paper (or equivalent computer software) design how the piece will be. If you notice, on the bottom of a brick, there are little tubes, make sure they align. 

Step 3:

If you are just combing two pieces, lightly sand the edge of the piece with 400 grit sand paper, glue and wait.

Step 4:

If you are cutting a piece to make it smaller cut with the hack saw where needed.

Step 5:

You will be left with a leftover piece. Take the 400 grit, sand until you just have that smooth edge piece left. Glue on and let dry.

    This project looks awesome, but there isn't really enough documentation of you actually making it for a complete Step-by-Step Instructable. There are two things which you could do.

    1) If you happen to have images of you making your project you can create some more steps with more complete instructions and then republish your Instructable.

    2) If you don't have any more pictures of you working on your project, that's okay too. That just means that your project is better suited to be submitted as a Photo Instructable. Your images are already in your photo library, and you can copy and paste the same text that you have already written for your Step-by-Step Instructable, so it should only take a few minutes to create a new Photo Instructable and show the world what you made!

    Also, remember that all content entered in contests much be original and belong to you, including pictures.

    Thanks for your submission and let me know if you have any questions along the way.
