I meant the pegs that was attached to the long rods that connect the panel to
the chest itself. The little "pegs" could easily break. I've had it happen
to the shoulderpads of Tallgeese III. I wanted to take out the shoulder hook
and replace it with another one, when the peg snapped off *with* the hook. I
trashed the Tallgeese kit after that because I was pissed.

stuff in the box. Anyways, what should I work on next... I have 3 kits
