Tinted Windows! (+ New Chrome)
Finally! After some time trying to figuring it out, I found the perfect way to make purple windows for this custom. Basically I bought a 2013 Reverb (from the Vertical Velocity 5-Pack) because it has clear windows. Then I bought some purple cellophane (exact same color as the tires I'll be using) and carefully taped everything together. Looks awful if you look at the window piece alone, but this life hack is not noticeable when you put the car together! The orange window piece will be used later in another custom, along with the spare 2013 Reverb :D

The interior piece got a new layer of chrome as well as the base. The base shown in the picture is the 2013 one, because the paint in the other one is still wet. The body seems to have a weird light orange in the picture, but it's because of all the extra lighting I set up for you guys to see the interior through the windshield properly. I'll be polishing the body soon, just waiting the 72 hours suggested by the brand which made the paint I used on it. Then I'll add the decals and put the car back together :)

Still need:

- Polishing (body).
- Applying decals (must polish body first).


EDIT: So I noticed a white stain on the windshield. This is a reflection, not an imperfection :)

Retro Redlines
So there are lots of artists recreating Hot Wheels cars nowadays. Vehicles like Highway 35 and AcceleRacers models get to be the most replicated ones, along with popular models like Twin Mill and Bone Shaker. It's time to show some appreciation to the retro Hot Wheels cars, the ones which made all the other models possible. This one is Custom Otto, the unreleased 17th car from the original 16 models. It's the very first redline on this page, but expect many others to come.

Legacy: Like Father, Like Son
Most people don't know, but there was a 1969 Hot Wheels cartoon featuring Jack "Rabbit" Wheeler as the main character. Some people theorize this cartoon is connected to the Highway 35/AcceleRacers universe, some say it's just a reference, and some even say it's a coincidence. I say it's legacy. To be a protagonist in the vast universe Hot Wheels fantasy has turned into, even if you're just a fictional character, it's an honor. It started with Jack, came all the way to Vert, and who knows what will happen in the future? Be assured, there will be someone to carry on the legacy, the legacy of speed, power, performance and attitude.


This white Redline is the 1969 Jack Rabbit Special, Jack Wheeler's car. This one is in terrible condition, but my idea was to buy a cheap derelict to restore it and give it a custom 50th anniversary look, featuring golden paint, black stripes, blue details, new wheel system, and so on. The Jack Rabbit Special became part of many children's lives back in 1969, it's about time for us to give this Hot Wheels ancestor some love. It even has its own theme song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=64uREk…


Then we move on to Deora II. Designed with passion by the great artist Nathan Proch, the Deora II carries the legacy of the original 1968 Deora and the legacy of Hot Wheels fantasy itself. This model can be seen as a link between the timelines, as it's Vert's first car and a newer version of a model which came 1 year before the Jack Rabbit Special. By far one of the most beloved and recognized Hot Wheels vehicles ever made, it was given a fully functional lifesize replica which is now part of Hot Wheels' real cars collection. In Hot Wheels fiction, this is Vert Wheeler's very first car, representing the birth of the new generation of drivers. Still, Jack appears before and after this car, guiding Vert through his path. Even being the most underrated driver, Vert exceeded all expectations and won the World Race, just to go back and return the Wheel of Power, and then gifting a friend with his prize money. Vert grew up as a person partially because of Jack, partially because of this car, and partially by himself and all his friends.


Major Wheeler couldn't just be forgotten along with his old Jack Rabbit Special. He came back with this futuristic cutting edge technology car, the Iridium. As a Silencerz agent, he continues to cross paths with his son, still shining on the streets and stealing the spotlight, but never harming the one who carries his legacy. Iridium was one of the 2 only Silencerz vehicles to be manufactured with CM5 wheels, the other one being Dr. Tezla's Nitrium. It's interesting to notice how both older characters' cars have older wheel designs.


All comes down to Reverb. The last of Vert's cars, the fastest vehicle in the AcceleRacers universe, the winner of the Ultimate Race, the only human car to survive in the end. Reverb represents the conclusion of Vert's role, leaving it all for the next generation of drivers. I'm sure it was a part of many people's childhoods, but one day it will be forgotten, just like Jack Rabbit Special and all the other models. But their legacy lives on, keeping them alive and ready to race. In the end, that's what matters. Carry the legacy with you, keep the Hot Wheels fantasy universe alive. For you, for me, and for the future generations who will not recognize Jack, Vert, Iridium or Reverb, because even without knowing all these important figures, they'll still be familiar with the legacy, and they will carry it as well.


The Reverb I'm currently customizing was given to me by my father. Even before watching Breaking Point, this was already my favorite design, an elegant mixture between classic supercars and modern Teku technology. After speaking with Dwayne Vance, I learned that it was made by Josh Henson, a pretty underrated artist who made lots of amazing cars that didn't receive enough attention as well. Reverb's page on Hot Wheels Wiki has been corrected ever since: hotwheels.wikia.com/wiki/Rever… The one in the picture is the prototype, made in 2004. It has a raw zamac blank base (nothing written on it) and it's made of Barbie plastic. I'm currently working on a prototype catalog, most of the AcceleRacers ones have been found and documented already. It will be a downloadable PDF once it gets done.

hey, I just found out something kind of funny. The RD-08 car from acceleracers is apparently a type of pick up truck like bass line, and looking at the die cast toy I can actually see it. Now I'm just stuck looking at pick ups on the road looking for a make and model that looks sort of like the car in question

This RD-08 might be better to compare to real life cars, as it's in a neutral state:

I think I found the perfect real life variant, a ford explorer pickup truck. has the best side profile for it atleast, I'm hoping to buy one and just add the lines on the side of RD-08 to the side
