Step 1: What You Need
a)A matchbox or hot wheels car. I recommend matchbox.
b)Some lead based spray paint.
e)Oil based acrylic paints for touch-ups.
f)Non serrated hobby quality knife.
Step 2: Paint 'er Up!
Now, before you go and spray like crazy, safety precautions:
a)It's best to go outside on a relatively calm day, and then lay down some newspaper in a big box. This way the fumes won't get everywhere.
b)Do not let any acid based spray paint get on your hands! It stings like hell! If you do get any, wash it off with nail polish remover, but don't use too much. The way this works is that the alkaline nail polish remover has a chemical reaction with the acidic paint. It's like vinegar and baking soda.
Step 3: Get Off the Tape
Step 4: Sand Off the Wheels
But wait, you ask, Why are we sanding the wheels?
And I say, Be cause it makes them really smooth. The car gets faster, the drifting gets sleeker, and it looks more like a audio clip: KA-BOOM!
Step 5: Finished! Concluding Remarks
Okay, so pretty much everything in this instructable is optional. For example, if you really like the coloring that came with the car, you could keep it. But you could also do more. In fact, this is just the bare minimum. Here's a few ideas:
Add LEDs as headlights.
Put in a battery powered motor or a wind up one.
Use stencils to paint words and numbers on the sides.
Build your own wheels.
Add a rocket motor as in this instructable.
Do this to a real car (and that means your car).
