Revive your old Hot Wheels with this restoration video

By Deeq on 24 Oct 2016 in Other blogs

Love to watch car restoration videos? What about a restoration on a "slightly" smaller scale? Well there's a YouTube channel out there that does just that, and the latest video shows you a bit of the process involved in bringing an old Hot Wheels classic back from the oxidized brink.

The scale car in question is a Custom Fleetside, which looks a lot like a conceptual cousin to a Chevrolet El Camino. It's heavily oxidized. It has cracks and scratches in the window. The paint is in terrible shape. But nearly all of that is about to change.

The paint is removed and a good portion of the underlying metal work is cleaned up. The car gets a fresh Spectroflame finish, and there's some custom touches applied to the bed and front and rear fascias. The resulting finished product is a far cry from where the car sat when the project started.

Hit play and you'll find yourself first wondering why you're watching this, and then realizing that you can't stop.
