Custom Hot Wheels VW Truck

I didn’t take as many pictures of this custom as I have the others just because I didn’t have the same amount of time to dedicate to it. I was a little rushed. My last custom I did was going to be the last time that I used a rattle can for a custom, but I came across this color at the hardware store and knew that I had to use it for something, so I chose this Hot Wheels VW Truck. This truck lived it’s whole life on a apple farm, only recently was it cleaned up and given a proper face lift by the original owners grandson. At least that’s how I see it. Anyhow, everything on this one was pretty straight forward, nothing spectacular as far as customizing. I did remove the little nub off of the roof, cleaned up the flashing and gave it a few coats of this nice leave green paint. The interior was painted a dark tan and I decided to go with the pizza pan wheel covers again. Though they really don’t fit these wheels as good as they did on the custom VW Bus. I’m still deciding whether or not to keep them. If I come across some nicer wheels, I may swap them out. All of the highlights were painted in a silver/chrome and a custom sign added to the bed of the truck. The 1/64 display base is my typical build topped off with a custom Apple Farm sign. This was a fun one to do and I’m very happy with the results even though I’m not totally sure about the wheels yet. Stay tuned for more customs soon!
