Female Vintage Mego Leg Fix

Female Vintage Mego Leg Fix
I found a couple of ways to actually fix the vintage female body that has loose legs. Using a new set of female Mego legs which fit, you can wire them up like a male Type 2 body and still use the vintage arms which work great and hook them in. First cut the old band for the arms and the one for the legs on the vintage female body. Next slide open the pins in the vintage arms. Now using the new Mego female legs with elastic and hook, work the hook part up through the vintage body to the opposite arm and lock the band in place with a crochet hook or screw driver. If you slightly close the open hook for the socket end, it may work better at this point before placing in the socket. Next slide the hook inside the socket. You cannot just hook it in. Next while holding the hook, slide the pin back in place so it traps the hook. Release the band and the arm should go right back into the socket with a nice snug fit with the new elastic band holding it. Great tight joints now and the hips are still slim. The foot is a bit bigger. Depending on the footwear most boots should work. Another way if you just wanted to tighten up a set of vintage hips or arms would be to use the C type hook found in a Type 2 Mego male body and hook it to the post of a female vintage leg and do the cross connect if you wanted to reuse the original legs.
