HotWheels Wheel Swap #2

A couple of week ago I posted the first HotWheels wheel swap I did, since I was really satisfied with how it turned out I decided to do another one.

It took me a while to do this one because I was debating what car to sacrifice and what car to install the real riders too.

But after a lot of thinking I decide to go with the Ferrari 365 GTS4 “Daytona Spyder” from the Miami Vice card as the sacrifice and a 1965 Ford Mustang from the 2009 Mustang Mania series to the transferee of the wheels.

This time I had my DSLR with me the whole time so the pictures should be better than my previous wheel swap post.

It took me a while to separate the wheels from the base of the Mustang. The rear wheels got bent so I had to cut them off 😦 .

HotWheels Macro – Kool Kombi

For today’s post I took pictures of the Kool Kombi. I wish I lived near a beach to take more fitting pictures of the cast.

This is just the regular main line cast, I have been looking for the $uper Treasure hunt for this particular cast but I’ve had no luck whatsoever, so far.

First Wheel Swap

So this afternoon I had some extra time so I decided to do a wheel swap, the sacrifice donor car is a Morris Mini from the original “The Italian Job”, after spending a while deciding what car to swap the wheels too I decide to go with the Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-x.

The swap was way more easier than I originally thought. I didn’t take too many pictures because I was way to excited about the swap 🙂 .

(Some of the pictures were taken with my cellphone).

The Mini is going to stay in some blocks for a while.
