Hot Wheels wedding customs?

Maybe this should be in the custom section, but I want all the Hot wheels guys to see it. My son is getting married in September and I am going to make some custom Hot Wheels for his groomsmen. Anybody ever seen this before? I'm looking for some ideas! I'm not doing custom cards, but am going to open the package with acetone, customize the car and reseal it.

Maybe a Dairy Delivery done in the colors of the wedding and the date on the side of the casting.

Do they have something in common that you can draw upon? School, hobby, sports...

Like MFR said, maybe ask what their fav car is, their fav number and maybe their fav beer, make a racer out of them. I know a decal seller in FL that makes some nice stuff for the #'s and beer part. If you make one individualized to each groomsman that would be extra special...the decals work best on a light colored car, keep that in mind. He's done some custom work for me, so maybe he could do a set with the wedding date for you to use. I'll PM you his ebay info in a bit.


Really nice project your doing

Congrats to your son!!

That would be awesome, but it would be hard to find 12 at this point. I'm going to pick up some white or light colored cars and do something with those. I picked up 5 of these tonight and hope to find about 7 more. There are 5 guys in the wedding party but I want to make a few extra.

Those would work.
I don't know about your area, but the Beatle's Dairy is a pretty much a peg warmer here, between Target and Wally and even K-Mart.

I have only seen about a case of the Beatles anywhere here. Good choice though.

Love that Porsche, I think the Caddy Elmiraj in white is something to think about too...

Have you thought about making some scale tin cans on fishing line to dangle from the back?

I did!
I also thought about the Caddy. I have never bought that many of the same car before and when things are dry, it can be tough to get all the same, so I may have to mix them a bit.
