Hotwheels 1965 Cyclone

As a break from model building, I like to customize a Hot Wheels every so often. When the '65 Cyclone drag car came out, I thought, "Hey, the wheelbase isn't altered, (much) so it should be relatively simple to make this into a factory stock car."

Well, the short list included filling the blower hole and re-sculpting the hood scoops, reducing the size of the rear wheel wells by adding styrene to the front edges, making a new chassis plate out of sheet styrene, removing the roll bar, and lightly bead blasting the interior to take paint.

Paint is factory '65 Comet Ocean Turquoise, Sherwin Williams base/clear, with white interior, foiled trim and headlights, taillights and turn signals detailed with Tamiya clear paints, and wheels from a particularly ugly flat grey Cuda convertible found at the grocery store.
