Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

I had a '67 I had stripped and primed along with the other three, but no good color for it. I just picked up a can of satin burgundy thinking it would look like old vermillion that came on these trucks. I dunno, something about the white tops creates a more realistic vibe. Any Custom 69s or these 67 C10s leave something to be desired...boring I guess. Now that I've painted a negative picture, what do you think?

Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

It looks more raspberry than faded burgundy. It has a fawn interior with black floor. There's more detail in the interior than exterior. I'd like to make a tonneau cover for this one, maybe in fawn to look like a Gaylord's cover. They could all use better wheels.
I want to start looking for Real Riders donors. I just bought three Custom 62s someone else did. I like the straight out of the package ones with better wheels, but also want them on custom painted ones. I want some stock looking tires & wheels, too. Greenlights are a bit pricey to be buying as wheel donors.
Here are the three I bought. They sure do look better with better wheels & tires:

Cool cars, but those Square bodies look so great with those paint jobs on 4wd chassis with aluminum slots!

Aren't those cool? One day I hope to have nothing better to do than be sitting down to a workbench making creations like that

Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

A couple years ago I started doing wheel swaps after my cousin made a Nova HotWheel for me that looked like my old one from high school.







Yes I even cut up a couple of my original Real riders that had been well played with for the wheels

Those look great. The Real Riders kick these trucks up a notch or two for sure.

I think I just added pictures of some '52s to the "Where's The Love?" thread. I'll check and if not I will tonight.

Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

Really fine, Mike. I have a thing for those stock looking paint jobs. They seem to give an added level of realism for me. Your two-tone scheme is just how I always felt GM should have done it on the front fenders

Re: Pic Thread: Customized Hot Wheels,etc

Here's a simple wheel swap I did on the 67 custom. I've got one in the paint process now. Just need time to finish it. I have a 62 I'm doing too. I just can't decide on a color for this one. I may try a patina look.
