Custom Matchbox 2017 Toyota Tacoma complete AKA how they should have done it.
Removed the tent, stripped the body down to bare metal. I used putty to add side mirrors. Resprayed in gloss red, also painted the base to match the body. Took the wheels from the Matchbox Jeep Wrangler JK and adjusted to match the real Tacoma’s wheels. Detailed panel lines and lights with Sharpie black marker, Molotov Chrome marker, and paint markers. Added badges by hand with marker and white paint using a toothpick. Once the process was complete, this Tacoma is now worth the $1 compared to what I started with.
