Hi guys,
Thought I'd share today's car mods with you for the laugh,
Sorry about picture quality taken using a tablet computer,

My two girls got these barbie Volkswagen beetle cars from santa last Christmas and I could never understand why he didn't put lights in them,

So last week I dissected the shells drilled some 4mm holes inside of the clear lenses and purchased from LEDs to give it the HID look which to scale actually work lol as you can see there ready to drag race with angry birds barbie counting down to the quarter mile attack with the LEDs illuminating just like scale HID

I also used the electrical nylon tape to line the footwell's and seats to feel and look like a two tone interior,
Happy with the results lol
And the 9volt battery's strapped down in the boot compartment just like a proper racer
