A couple of days ago, I put a couple of beers in my belly and decided it'd be a great idea to add some shakotan pipes and a spoiler to a Hot Wheels 2000GT. That....didn't work and five minutes later, I quit.
WELL I'm doing it again. Totally sober this time. I have this no name brand Cadillac limo. It's a pull back and go deal with a broken motor, broken aerial, and black sharpie all over. Here it is:
This thing was held together by screws, so disassembly was a breeze.
See! A breeze! I took the metal shell outside with some goof-off and a toothbrush and rubbed all the sharpie off for a solid 20 minutes. The result was seeing that original gray paintjob.
But there were still some issues. The aerial was broken still and had to go. Plus the chrome wheels had lost their luster. With the pull back motor barely functioning, I pulled the wheels and brakes off of an X-Concepts 1/43 scale CRX and glued them to the axles. Pics of that tomorrow when their done. I asked my father for advice on what to do with the antenna. He ended up cutting it off and using body filler to fill the hole, which I'm now waiting to dry.
You can see the X-Concepts CRX in the back there. I wanted to do a review of it, but it's giving its life for the greater good. Maybe I'll attempt to restore the limos wheels and use those on the CRX. We'll see. Tomorrow morning I'll be giving the Caddy a coat of brown and painting the roof an off-white.
