From my experiance, the Hot Wheels models are a PITA to take apart. They use way too many rivets & crazy glue to hold the cars together. The main problems you would run into are the door panels & windows.
:iagree :iagree

If you are talking about stripping the car to paint.. i think Hot Wheels is definitely harder than AUTOart. But if ur talking bout swapping wheels.. Hot Wheels would be the easier one in my opinion.

Nothing beats Bburago! :happy They are the easiest to dissemble!

I've found the HWs to be fairly easy. Some of them use glue (stupid 333Sp chassis), but overall, I haven't had too many problems. Especially since, like Bburago and other manufacturers, they offer a lot of their cars in kit form, which immediately lends itself to some form of assembly/disassembly.

All I'm gonna do for now is replace the exhausts ( do i need a special knife for this?) and maybe paint some of interior

I'm also considering a body respray
