My friend made this for me. I like the rims much better!
Haha, somebody "took" my idea! Those rims are off one of the "Happy Birthday" cars! Great minds think alike!
Heres a crappy pic of one of mine. Swapped the black interior and tinted glass from a silver GN to this black GN
EDIT: Re-did the frame, narrowed the rear of the plastic base to tuck the larger rear wheels under the rear fenders, and shortened the axles. I think it looks great!
cenerlines 2 tone interior
Nice work dudes
I was making custom GN Hotwheels several years ago,long before Hotwheels made a GN.
those look like racing champions cars? nice work
Awesome work but you guys have waaaaaayyyy too much free time. But how the hell do you get the pack open without messing it up? And what do you use to re-seal it?
I'd like to buy some of them. Are they for sale??
i just put together a black one with the tinted window and black interior from a silver with some BFG radial ta and them to the black car interior and window and wheel put them on the silver.
I've never sold any,I only have the 6 that I made hanging on my wall.The problem is they are costly to make because THIS is what I use for cars to put in the Hotwheel pkg. and they are getting co$tly these days.But they work the best because they have the most detail of any 1/64 GN diecast.When you paint the inserts on the wheels they look just like real GN wheels.
But anyway the diecast(american muscle) is expensive.Also there are only a couple different bubbles on the Hotwheel cards that an American Muscle GN will fit in and I prefer 97-98 pkgs.So I'd have to either go to the fleamarket 1.5 hours away or buy some Hotwheels online and pay $5+ for shipping to get the pkgs. I need.:frown: Then with my tedious labor and shipping fees it would be too costly for a fake Hotwheel. :redface:
Didnt hurt to ask. Thanks anyways
Looks great! What wheels did you use? Off what car?
Off the "40 Somethin" Birthday car..............
Is this a trade secret? Up some info guys.:smile:
Lighter fluid on the back of the card where the blister is glued to the cardboard, wait a few mins, peel up the corner and carefully peel the bottom of the blister from the cardboard to release the car. Re-seal with elmers or superglue carefully. HTH
Looks great! Do you know if that car is still in the stores?
