A special with a . I'm sure there's better ways out there but these are some of the techniques i use on my customs. 🤫 SWIPE>>>>>>
* First off: capping custom axles (can also be used as spacers on your axles to prevent wheels from sinking too far into the wheelwells). I use the rubber tubing from paperclips and a bit of glue, as seen in the 2nd picture.
* Dechroming. Simply put your plastic parts in undiluted bleach, leave for a few minutes, done. Shown in picture 3.
* Custom (deepdish) wheels. Drill out the centre off one type of wheel, and then glue onto your desired rims. Picture 4 as an example.
* Open roof. Drill a few holes with your dremel, then file down the leftover bits in between and clean up the edges. Works for me, as shown in the 5th pic.
* Custom base, version 1: a simple piece of U-shaped styrene. Cut where you want the axles to sit and where you want to screw your rivets, ideal for lowering trucks and can be painted as desired. Picture 6.
* Custom base, version 2: base flip! One of my favorite things to use on trucks because of how it looks, but won't work one every casting. Pretty self explanatory i think, pictured in slide 7.
Hope this helps! Use to your liking. I didn't invent these, just passing on the knowledge. 🤝
