Welcome to the ultimate Hot Wheels Hack – brought to you by @Mistadixster

Learning how to remove the base and pull apart your Hot Wheels is the most important and basic of skills needed to customise Hot Wheels and perform the wonderful wheel swap that many are content with. I have covered the topic on many occasions here at MCH and to be honest I thought my method of drilling out the rivets in such a way that the (plastic) base could simply clip back on without the need for screws or glue was the most effective way to remove the base. Until now.

The method Rashdi shares to remove the base and pull apart Hot Wheels is the most creative and effective method I think I have ever seen and I’d like to take this opportunity to both thank and tip my hat to Rashdi Razaha for allowing me to share it with you all here today.

How To Pull Apart Hot Wheels Without Drilling Rivets

Note that this method only works with plastic bases.

1. Turn on Soldering Iron and wait for it to heat up (10 – 15minutes)

2. Place solder at the center of rivet pointing straight down

3. Pull the base up by holding to both of the wheels. Make sure your solder at straight angle.

4. After removing the base you can choose either you want to custom body or just a simple wheelswap.
