Some better pics of this model. This happens to be one of my favorite pieces. I bought it off eBAY with the wheels already on it. I was curious to see what and how other customizers were attaching their wheels.

The seller did an extremely good job on this piece as it is tastefully done and the wheels roll. Definitely not a hack job. :nicejob

Looks good DiecastX. You can get those wheels form Collectible Diecast.com and they come with brake calipers and metal axles. I have been attaching some to my trucks (picks soon, I have been busy at work :crying ). The best way to do this is to trim (shorten) the axile stubs on the wheels, then cut off the axle stubs on the car that you want to put the wheels on, glue the brake calipers onto the ones form the car and then put the wheels in. I don't know if you can see what I mean, so I'll try to get some picts if I can. How have the wheels been attached to your Cayanne?

thanks

This model has no glue on it anywhere...and I'm glad as I didn't want a hack job.

The wheels have the regular Maisto plastic peices fitted to the wheels as if it came from the factory that way.

Nice model X!
Actually that car looks really similar to this 1/1 Gembella edition Cayenne turbo i saw the other day(i was like :drool when i saw it!), the rims look alike (from my vague memory)

WOW, DX - that Cayenne is ballin'! It looks ghetto in ALL the right ways. :tongue It reminds me of an old mob car or, at least, what one would look like. :happy
