McLaren Monday: Customizing a 1969 Hot Wheels McLaren M6A

Last week I was tossing around the idea of wheel swapping an original redline McLaren M6A with new, more accurate wheels from Hot Wheel’s Car Culture line (you can read the post here).

Well I went with it, hit eBay and the local stores to get everything I needed to do the swap and completed it earlier today. Now while it’s a little rough and not 100% completed as it still needs proper paint details and decals, I think it came out okay!
