Got this Tahoe today.. wheels were bent so I went to my junk bin and found a Majorette generic scifi-car for a wheel donor.

I have never liked this Suntoys Toyota Tacoma.. always had bent wheels too. I went for a wheel swap (wheels from some pullback car), lowered stance and added some details to the front.

Still a lot work to do on the Nissan to get the base to fit perfectly. I was thinking of a repaint but I kinda like the paint so I might just detampo the sides.

This Golf is a true peg warmer here.. I have been thinking of buying it for a year now but haven't because the wheels are hideous. Today I decided to buy it but it needed some wheel work. I had this set of wheels from a beater Ferrari Racer but hadn't found a suitable receiver for it until now

The wheels are awesome. Step 2 need not be a repaint. Just lose the goofy tampoes. Step 3 could be adding detail such as headlights, taillights. Some features should not be body color. Your can't expect too much out of a dollar car. Great job nevertheless.
