    In honor of the new Jurassic World premiere, I've decided to soup up an old Barbie Jeep Power Wheels and drive it into the theater for the premiere!

    What are you planning to paint it with? If I recall, that plastic doesn't take paint very well. I think someone on the RPF mentioned a special paint that is formulated to stick to that, but I don't recall what it was called.

    Krylon Fusion is alleged to stick to plastics better than the regular spray paint. Other brands may have similar stuff.

    Mostly Krylon for plastic. DEFINITELY making sure to use several layers of primer on everything first.

    That little plastic seat is too small for me, so putting in a nice cushy leather one.

    Ok, I got the grill and headlight covers primed, painted, and reassembled.

    AND I'm gonna make all the headlights and floodlights work, so I won't get lost when the T-Rex chases me at night.

    As far as paint, I suggest hitting the plastic with 400 grit sandpaper then spraying Krylon Fusion primer. For the color, Duplicolor BCC0383 is an almost exact match for the original Crystler Metalic sand beige used on the Jeeps. (It's what I'm using on my actual Jurassic Park Jeep). A couple coats of clear coat should make it look fantastic. I would suggest using plastidip spray for the red stripes. It's a bit more forgiving and still looks awesome.

    I rode in it once already and it needs more power, so I'm doubling the battery power from 12v to 24v. I want to be able to ride into the movie premiere. :)

    Also cut some new tail lights for the back.

    Got the windshield painted, windshield wipers and rear view mirror painted,


    And I also found some cut and stick replacement mirrors so I can make the sideview and rearview mirrors into real working mirrors.

    If you want more traction. Some people cut up bmx tires a run them like rubber bands along the center of the plastic tires.
    Looking good, maybe a crate of dino eggs and a hatchling in the rear bed?

    WELL, I've got an Aker amp I'll be putting where the Barbie radio originally was, that was I can blast the Jurassic Park theme song as I drive around!


    Also, it wouldn't be complete without a costume!

    Yes! This was totally what I was going to do with an old power wheels jeep I found! Looks awesome, seriously cool! My plan for my jeep was to extend the body frame so that my legs didn't have to be all squashed. But then I gave it away to Volpin and he turned it into this.
