Ride-On Car Updates


How to update a Power Wheels ride on car like a Superman car,

How to make a Superman car by updating an old ride-on electric toy car.We received this toy car free off Freecycle and I wanted to update it because I saw all these cool paint jobs on Pinterest and got excited. My son didn't care what it looked like until I told him I was going to make him a "Superman car" by painting it, then he got mad every time I wouldn't immediately go paint this (I was still waiting on red paint- which I ended up canceling as I realized it wasn't necessary). He'd see the blue paint sitting out of reach and say "SUPERMAN CAR!?" Glad I finally finished this. Haha.

So I purchased some special spray paint for plastic, got out my drop cloth and my painter's tape, and got to work. I did take some of the stuff off to paint to make it easier, as possible. My toddler helped me remove all of the old stickers from it. Very easy and quick to do this project.

Here are the supplies that I bought from Amazon, if you want to make it really easy. Both items below are the exact ones I used. The car was already red in places so I didn't need to paint those areas. Order two of the stickers if you want one on each side. Ordering using the affiliate links below help support my blog, thank you!


The process

Took it apart a bit so we could cover the "guts" with drop cloth.
Taping everything up.
Paint and let dry.

Remove all tape and put the car back together.
