Vic clued me in on this at the last trail. Apparently Matchbox has a 5-pack of small trucks that has a blue Jeep XJ with a pirate flag on it!!! I found the pack at TRU, and although the body style is the same, the colors they used on this truck are gawd-awful. So, I broke out my paint brush!!! rofl

First, the current colors. The chassis of this thing is CREAM Shocked , and the pale blue for the body does not exist in the natural world, much less the Chrysler one. I opened up my gun-metal grey and gave the chassis a nice coat of paint to make it look more normal, then decided to flat black the lower trim and wheel hubs. I was trying to settle on which blue to use to darken up the body when it hit me; I had a small bottle of Patriot Blue touch-up paint left over from when I fixed my rear fender quarter panel (darn trees, always like to jump out when you least expect it!!! rofl ). So, I pulled that out and painted the body. Then I found out the hard way, ACTUAL VEHICLE BODY PAINT IS A %^$& TO PUT ON A SMALL TOY CAR!!! I evened it out as best as I could, but it looks a little rough. I did manage to paint around the pirate flag, and now it looks like it should with a skull and crossbones on each door. I'll post pix of my handiwork later.

Funny what you can come up with when you're bored!!!

TRU = Toys 'R Us

I'll pick up a set if you'd like, or Vic can get you one, whichever you prefer.
