Personally Customized Rivited

Here is a Rivited I customized myself, it was originally a McDonald's Happy Meal toy back from 2005. All I did to it was that I removed the paint and polished it up a bit to give it a nice clean Zamac/metal finish. On top of that I swapped out the wheels for some plastic black Good Year ones. Also I accented it with some black paint and I detailed the headlights, taillights, grill, windshield wipers, and such. Overall I like my amateur customization job, it was fun! And it lights up too, cool!








The original is to the right for comparison.
