The Cozy Coupe Makeover
At the beginning of the summer, we decided it was time to makeover my daughter’s old cozy coupe to give to my son. I knew I wanted to customize it to match my father’s antique 1955 Chevy BelAir so I set out to do one of the most fun DIY projects I’ve ever done. I hope this tutorial helps others looking to do the same!
-Spray paint in determined colors(make sure it is specified to work on plastic)
-Zip lock bags
Step #1: Tape up anything you don’t want to be painted including Little Tykes emblems, the steering wheel, and the tires.
Step #2: Apply base paint color. I started with the white as the white section would be easiest to tape up.
Step #3: Tape up anything you want to keep the base paint color. I used trash bags to cover larger areas. Apply the second color.
Step #4: Repeat taping anything you want to remain the prior color with trash bags to cover large areas for any subsequent colors and applying spray paint.
Step #5 Apply new decals & enjoy your like-new cozy coupe! I purchased ours from http://www.TheToyRestore.etsy.com
I highly recommend this project. It was very easy and simple to bring an old ugly toy car to look brand new!
