DIY JDM Christmas tree with Hot Wheels ornaments

December 23, 2016 in christmas

As this year is nearing it’s end, I thought I should do something special this year. The Christmas holidays are coming up soon, and in all it’s joy and glory fits a Christmas tree. I got one at home, but I didn’t have one in my office. And since my office is partially a JDM shrine, the tree should be one as well. A JDM Christmas tree to be more exact!

The idea for this came when I received a red Hotwheels AE86 as a present for Sinterklaas. Sinterklaas is the Dutch Santa Clause and therefore I thought I should do something with it. So I wondered how much work it would be to convert a Hotwheels car into a Christmas tree ornament. It couldn’t be that long?

Merry Chistmas and the best wishes for 2016!
'Merry

My wishes last year were:

  • World peace
  • Cure for all diseases
  • Discovering a barn-find Nissan 2400GT (I’ll also settle for a Nissan 240K GT)

None of them came true unfortunately…

My wishes for 2016 would be:

  • World peace
  • Cure for all diseases
  • Finishing the 4AGE swap that has been taking over one and a half years already

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

It almost became a unwritten tradition to post a picture of a certain Toyota Carina with my X-mas wishes and last year was a bit sad. So I decided not to get as corny as my neighbor who sends me a Christmas card including her and her dogs and decided to post this photo I took of a Silvia instead:
Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
So merry Chistmas and a happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a rustfree New Year!

Yes, that is no typo:
Merry Christmas and a rustfree New Year!

My automotive year ended quite badly. What turned out to be a very tiny hole in the rear inner fender on both sides proved to be a true nightmare: the tinworm struck again, ate its way through and instead of a white Christmas I’m actually seeing quite reddish now…
Lucky enough this is the only rust on the whole floorpan of the Carina as it has been creeping from inside out and not the other way around. So to prevent my Carina from becoming a rustoseum I’m having this fixed shortly after New Year and let’s hope it is a rustfree year for everyone! 🙂

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

With yesterdays Soarer centercaps I can only do the wishes in this proper way!
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

I’m obviously also going to celebrate these events, so I’m not too sure when I’ll be back for my next posting.
