Had a little time this week to work on the custom VW Bus. Still not totally sure of the direction I’m going with this just yet, but I’ve got a lot of ideas. I’ve added some side panels that still need a lot of work, but I really like the look. I’d planned to exchange the stock Hot Wheels wheels with something more “realistic”, I think I’ll keep them this time and customize them to go with the flow. Of course the ugly blue metallic highlight will go away and I’ll texture the plastic tires to look more realistic. Last but not least, I’ll be adding pizza pan will covers. It took me a while to find something that would fit the stock wheels perfectly and give it that pizza pan look. I finally came across some rivets that I had for the wing windows for VW Beetles and they fit perfectly. I just had to remove the flaring stud on them. I’ll dull them a bit to make them look more like aluminum. I think they’ll be a nice addition. Stay tuned!
