My Latest Spray Paint Makeover!

Three years ago, one of my dad's friends gifted my nephew with this Radio Flyer Coupe. Lets just say that car has ATLEAST 100,000 Miles on it from all the laps around their driveway! It has been loved, and over time beat up, faded, and worn out!  I brought it home with me when I went down there recently and have been restoring it!
This is what it looked like:
I gave it a lot of thought as to what kind of color or theme I wanted to do, and I decided since this car would be PERFECT for tailgates ( they block off the street so there is lots of smooth concrete to drive him on) and went with a Titans Theme! I Spray painted the entire car a glossy light blue. The Seat and other parts a Navy Blue.

Then I did some detailing with Red and Silver Metallic Duck Tape and bought some Titans Bumper Stickers...

I then downloaded some free "License Plate" Font and made him a license  Plate that says "PEEBS" HA
and we put some good miles on it at the Tailgate yesterday! Cousin Chlo loved it as well!
There are a million faded kids cars on craigslist that you could do this too! Upcycle! Good for the wallet and good for the world!
