That looks way cool!!! I'm inspired enough by your custom work to try that out myself! Have you considered tinting your windows on teh Bimmer? A 5% limo tint would look really cool. (20% would look really good too.)

One noob question....what is a DC truck??

:phat

oh man... how do i even do that? with actual tint film?! if you have some suggestions, please let me know! gafotes told me i can spray paint it, but i dont want to use just black paint...i'm thinking you mod gods have done it with that "smoke-out" spray stuff huh (for the headlights/tailights on 1:1)? please let me know, guys!!! i have to finish off these beemers with some tint!!!

as for the rims, they are from a 1:24 scale DUB CITY truck (the ram). you can get some decent deals at your local-and-now-everywhere walmarts or target for under ten bucks.

HERE'S a TIP for all of you who dont know... Hot Wheels cars are dope. the way the mounts and wheel mechanisms work are so easy to use. i just took the wheels off, found out the FRONT were held together by screws, and that was that for the fronts. the rear was tricky and i ended up cutting off the axle with some metal shears. oh well. BUT HERE's SOME REAL GOOD NEWS!!!.... remember ALL THOSE little screws that hold maisto models to their bases? THEY FIT and WILL HOLD the DC wheels in place!!! turns out those screws have some use for me! i'm buying hot wheels from now on for the under 20 dollar cars!!! ALL MY WHEELS roll and the FRONTS turn with the ORIGINAL SUSPENSION!!!!

HOPE THIS HELPS AND THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS!!!
