some cars need this badly
I posted pictures of my modifed Matchbox cars three years ago (or 2) and everyone who viewed it asked me if I suck penis! Now I see that at least someone else out there does this kind of stuff LOL!
Heres Some of mine:
My match box Eclass on Hotwheels wheels
super slammed of course and the wheels don't rub LOL
A MkIV golf I got from walgreens on match box wheels
Dummy exaust from broken cigarett lighter
now that i have a Dremel Set, Im gonna do a bunch more cars. Been doing it since I was like 16 yrs old by opening the cars with a small nail and hammer and using a hack saw for modifying the height on cars without springs. Not many match box cars have the flat spring in em anymore
Check ou the BBS RSs on the Alpine. (The tires are to big but in most cases those can be swapped out.)
The other option is Slot car accessories. I Couldn't find much for 1:43 but did find these in 1:35. Some might work for a 1:43 Mk1
Found a Maisto Hauler w/a Dodge viper on it @ Ross for $5. The Viper had these wheels and I thought they were perfect for a wheel swap. I haven't decided what they will go on yet.
I have more possible swapees but my camera ran out of batteries so I'll have to do some more mock-ups tomorrow.
Too cold & snowy to be outside so I did a few more...
the silver Golf (welly) had some ugly chrome steelies
These Maisto got good treatment
RX7 looking better
I swapped out the Caddi wheels to the Chevy, there were much too large (truck size).
The wheels the Caddi has on are proportion to the scale size, but still looking for the same size but different wheel.
lowered this one
Stay tuned for Beetle, gonna lower it and wheel swap...plus...
Here's a few I've done on 1/24 models
Upconverted a set of RS's the other day. Still need to paint them and put them on some thing
