    Night fever, night fever,We know how to do it,Gimme that night fever, night fever,We know how to show it....and speaking on know how to show it,this thing turned perfect!!!! from the color and the Hot Wheels style graphics and the real thing/things that just really make it that Hot Wheels look is the yellow tinted glass and pot metal interior/chassis and the display just sets it off  in fact the shot with the car with its "wrapper" looks like a 1/64 Hot Wheels....I enjoyed this one all the way!

    The burnt orange color looks great just as it would in my kitchen but I have the Sunrise Yellow in mine and what?!?!?!?!? when men wore polyester suits?!?!?!?! what do you mean when? I never got the memo that they went out of style......dangggggg next your gonna tell me my kitchen is outdated ......Seriously I am loving this creation every step of the way and it to me is capturing the Hot Wheels theme/look all the way.....

    Thanks for the tip on the tint,never even thought about the Tamiya clear colors to tint glass even though I have all the colors and use them for lenses etc. ...big duh on my part lol.....
     As far as the engine over size I too remember some of the Hot Wheels having "Monster Cubic Inches"  like this lil' one.

    Great to see you back at it Nick, and what a way to get back to it with this sweet lil' service station truck you did and the color combination works perfect with the Esso theme.

    Thanks JT,I know it won't be 100% correct nor will it have much detail but I fell it would clean it up a bit.

    Even though this is gonna be a "curb side" build the front straight axle just doesn't sit well with me so I got a old 4x4 axle and using it to add the the straight axle to give it a sorta correct look from a display view



    Picture of the "roughed in" look,still got a bit of work to do to it.


    Got the holes filled in on the wrecker bed from when I removed the whatever ornament on the side,I used a thin plastic sheet to cover from the back side and cut plastic pieces to fit the opening and sanded it down and now just put a thin layer of putty to hopefully finish it off cleanly and also messed with the front axle tracking and brought the wheels in closer hopefully they look about right....


    Thanks for lookin' and as always comments,ideas and or suggestions always welcomed......
