    My Son in a Barbie Jeep--NO WAY!!!

    So my wife calls me and tells me that her sister gave her a "Power Wheels" Jeep for our son Zach. Wait a minute, I've seen that thing. Isn't it a pink and purple Barbie Jeep?

    Yep that's the one. I get home to find him washing it in the back yard.



    He already loves the stupid thing, and as much as I want to, I can't throw it in the trash in the middle of the night like I had originally planned.

    What to do? Well, I decided to load the thing up in the back of my pickup, stop by and pick up some rattle cans and beer and then head over to my buddy Nick's house. tearing it apart took about 5 minutes, I wish real cars were like that...



    We started by drinking some beer, then we started painting the bottom black:



    We then painted the top olive drab and the bumper, rollbar and windshield frame black. It ended up looking like this when we were done:





    Now the little dude can drive this sucker until the wheels fall off. It actually has pretty good get-up-and-go when the battery is charged, it will spin the tires mercilessly when he takes off from a dead stop.
    When I was younger I used to pray for a new bike.  Then I learned that God doesn't work that way so I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness.

    Great job Zlat!

    Yah, I'll go for the part about your son NOT growing up confused!

    Brought one home for my kid, once... batteries were ded.

    Found out they were expensive!

    So I took the Sawzall to the hood and we dropped in a 12v auto battery and re-wired it.

    LoL He was ALL over town on that thing! (Very small town...)

    Best,

    Awesome no identity problems for him. When daughter was little took a bike ( I Know the bar) but a friend did the same in reverse for her it went from blak to pink!
    This is the day the Lord hath made we shall rejoice and be glad in it!

    Re: My Son in a Barbie Jeep--NO WAY!!!

    Thanks for the kind words everyone.

    I ordered some stencils on line and personalized it a little bit:





    I've been doing a little research, and I'm gonna upgrade it to 18volt. from what I've seen on youtube, a kid can turn doughnuts on flat concrete with that upgrade.
    When I was younger I used to pray for a new bike.&nbsp; Then I learned that God doesn't work that way so I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness.

    Re: My Son in a Barbie Jeep--NO WAY!!!

    Dang man, that's pretty hardcore... I really wish more parents thought like you do and realize that putting your own time into something, even if it's not brand new, probably has more impact on a kid than anything else.
    I wish my dad was a little more creative like that.

    Thanks Bran- It has been a blast to tinker with this thing so far. Now I get to upgrade the power supply and make it faster! (rubs the palms of his hands together menacingly.....mmmmmyeaaa)

    Try using a 24V battery similar to those used in Porsche 911's...

    From what I've read, 24 volt is sizzlingly fast, but destroys the gearboxes. 18 volt seems to be about right.
