Thrift Shop find for $4.00

Post by je from vegas » Mon Jun 22, 2009 8:50 pm

Checking out the various 2nd hand stores - Thrift stores and Dollar stores today..........

I picked up a "Hot Wheels" city for only $4.00

It was all stuffed into a large plastic bag.

Laid it all out for a quick photo out back on the patio table. Definitely needs some toning down on the color scheme !!! :lol: :lol:

Just another fun project for this summer vacation

Just get some low tac masking tape, it wont damage the paper decals if your careful and take your time when peeling it off. :)

I have most of those as well, and they work perfectly in city type fights.

it's going to be so very cool after you paint it.
