Complete car rebuild new paint.

So I made you look. The bottom pic is what it looked like. It was my daughters. My son is turning two so I thought I would mod it for him. Removed all the stickers. Painted flat black. Leather seat. LED headlights. Still to do, 2nd coat with glossy black. Finish all the wheels. Install BMW emblem (or a sticker if the emblem looks too big.)

Actually I dont have alot of time on my hands. That is what is crazy. I just love doing this b/c its for my son. My daughter plays soccer, baseball and bowling, games and practices. I have been landscaping and working on my pool until dark evernight, then working on this car until bed. Saturday I stayed up until 3am working on it. Its fun.

The rims are the hardest part. I cant figure out how to paint them and make it look real good. BTW- I suck at painting.

Thumbs Up

You should black out the rims with that flat-black, then do a cardboard cut-out of a 5 spoke in gun-metal grey.....
