Actually it's... Maisto...

...just start by taking them apart...

...then you can modify them pretty much as you would a plastic kit, if you want to strip the paint DON"T use CSC as it can attack the metal, instead use any automotive or airplane stripper. Then prep as you would a plastic kit. To hack on the body use epoxy, instant glue and two part catalyzed putty to make your modifications.

What we need for these is some better wheels and tires, especially some ft rear tires!

Here's a thought for custom fenders - look in your local drugstore at the artificial fingernail section, there are some cool possibilities there!

Ive tried very basic mods on these, lowering suspensions swapping wheels etc.. with moderate success. but have never gone as far as stripping the paint and spraying another color.

I tried to paint the seats and saddle bags with Model Master black crome enamel. It never dried. I think that you have to use acrylic paint on the rubbery plastic bits.
