How To Customize Hot Wheels & Diecast Cars
Here you will find everything you need to get started, from removing wheels and tampos, to making your own axles and repainting the car itself. Please know that all of the methods I share here are what I have personally found to have worked the best and most consistently over time. I realise there are a thousand different ways to go about customizing your Hot Wheels die-cast cars so if you find taking a little of my advice and mixing it with something you heard elsewhere then go for it. Or as Homer would say “A little from column A, a little from column B”
