Modified Parts

Now I know you can use modified vex parts, say a C-channel, on a robot. but to what lengths can you go in modifying these parts?
I know you can bend, and cut c-channels, but to what lengths can you alter it and still have it considered a vex part? can you use C-channel to make a wheel? can you fold in into something completely different? can you weld C-channel together? could you even melt down C-channels and recast them into custom metal pieces? I mean, this isn’t realistic, but is there a rule preventing this from being done?

Read R16. It answers your questions pretty well. These two subsections say most of it:

ah alrighty that about sums it up thanks.

I hope you take a closer look at the rules - they do answer many questions.
