Here's some pics from the Jeep build I did earlier this year. My son is all about the Paw Patrol show, so I thought I'd surprise him for his birthday with new decals for the Jeep.


One of the fenders was broken, so I started by trimming them to be even.

Gave it the ol' heat gun treatment as prescribed in the FAQ. Here's a before/after shot of the seats.

Peeled off the old stickers, stuck them to pieces of cardboard, scanned them, had my photoshop wizard of a SiL put a new theme on the shapes, took the files to a vinyl printer and had these printed.
Image

I thought they came out pretty good, although the printer missed the front fender decals and hasnt gotten back to me since :evil:

For a finishing touch, my sister used her CAD/3d printing skills to make new 3d badges to replace the original power wheels badges

The only mechanical mod was swapping the original motors for traxxas titan 21t, which provided a pretty good speed/torque boost without being excessive for a 3yo. Overall, the Jeep has been a big hit with the kids, they love the theme and the fact that it's slightly faster than the stock KFX.

If you'd like a copy of my decal files, I'd be happy to share... and preschooler tantrums/fights is a pretty big issue with the power wheels. They all have their favorites and its always the same one that someone else is using.

Great Job! Fishin, I'd like a copy of your file to take to local printer if you could. And with raising 2 grandkids, they and the rest of the kids at the park ALWAYS wrestle over the one they DON'T have! Don't know how many times I've taken them and only having room for 2 in the truck, I'd wished I had a trailer to load up 6-7 to turn'em all loose!!
