Reviews of powerwheels for Girls! I originally started this site for my daughter and want to make sure we have an area that is dedicated to power wheels for girls. Power wheels modifications for girls or just reviews are all welcome. Dad can post reviews, but it has to be about/for a girly subject.

New Member, long time follower on this site.
My Daughter just turned 3 and i'll admit I've been waiting just over 3 years to do this.
I remember wanting PW as a kid, but back in the day they were a bit pricy for the average family.
Although I am posting everything at once, I've been visiting the forum for months, collecting advice and diagrams for everything from paint to electrical layouts. You guys have been a big help and the end result is amazing! Despite all the advice, I still surprised myself a bit when everything worked perfectly on the first try.

Posted pix below of the project from start to finish...
Kidtrax Dodge Viper, 12v, 2 seater. :twisted:
Added a second 12v in parallel for double life, remote kill switch (RM02 & 40ah relay),
Krylon paint job, pink carbon fibre, and custom plates. Just finished the custom charging station w/ built-in smart charger.
Ran into plenty of trouble along the way, but always found the answers on here..

Thanks guys!
I prepped for primer a bit, light sanding and cleaned with spirits. Instead of doing a multi stage job with different colour, sparkle and clear coat, i just did 1 process so when she eventually scuffs it up, it will be a simple spray touch-up.

The electrical looks easy on paper but once you cut open the wiring harness and add another battery, more wires, remote and relay it gets messy! I am surprised it worked on the first try.

The license plate i did myself, had it printed on reflective vinyl by my buddy at f5industries.com.

I have a graphics background, not much of an installer though so wrapping a tight curved object in pink carbon was a real pain!
Like an hour each with the heat gun.

All came together nicely though. Can't wait to see her reaction!
Teaching her to drive it is the next battle :roll:

With a 2nd on the way, this may be a hand-me-down in a few years.
If it's a boy... this might be the next paint job....
