[CUSTOM] Update

I've had a lot of customs in the works lately, and more still are as of yet underway. Here's a quick recap.

Let's start with the Hot Wheels. First, from the 2015 Mainline is an Eight Six that I call "my first Hachi." This is the sort of daily driven, occasionally drifted, non-hangar queen is what I would imagine my real hachiroku will be like once I finally get her ;-)

Also from the 2015 Mainline, a '69 SS396 Chevelle that I tried to make as factory as possible. I tried to leave some of the blue stripe to hint of a former racing career, long since retired and now daily driven. I wanted a "yesterday's racer" sort of feel.

Lastly, from the 1993 Mainline, an early model Ford Aerostar minivan. First off, I would never custom a car of this vintage, but I happened to have two, both in very good condition.
