I made this first custom Hot Wheels for a co-worker friend who has owned a blue 2004 WRX STi since nearly new, and keeps it in mint shape. He is also a big collector of 1/64 diecast.

It wasn’t a very involved custom, just modified the wing and shaved the hood and roof a little, but it was fun, and he really thought it was great.

I probably spent more time photoshopping the card image to glue over the existing red WRX rally car image.


I also intentionally left the headlights and taillights alone to make it look like a cheap mainline (although it did get a window “tampo” treatment). I think it came out great, and he totally got that.
