Yea I can't believe how hacked up this house is as far as the plumbing goes but the one thing I have in my favor was that my father was a good teacher and I was an attentive student it has served me well in my later years .

I bought a Power Wheels Lightning McQueen car to make it into a mini Opel GT. But it really looks like a Solstice/Sky. I was going to cut out the passenger area and slide the whole thing over and bolt it to a Cruisin' Cooler. The wheels would have been elevated off the ground and inch or so and you would actually ride around on the cooler's wheels. They make a 1000 watt cooler that can go 40+mph and there's lots of add-ons you can buy.

The Power Wheels are probably made from polypropylene and it's difficult to get ANYTHING to stick to that stuff. You'll need some kick ass primer. Home Depot sells a super primer in a can called poly-something. You can prime glass, aluminum, galvanized, etc. with it and it works really good.

On the subject of model cars, check out the cool chrome Solstice Coupe keychain my German friend is sending me:
