    Ok I realy like the Chevy Aveo Swerve, but didnt like the whole 4 door thing. I did a rough Digibash in Paint and came up with a mod I like and that I think is easy enough for a novice like me to do. I'm not sure what to name it; I was thinking Carbon or Double Clutch, something race inspired.

    The only thing is, I need to find one (cheap) so I can do it. The lowest priced one I can find is $89.99 with 29.00 for shipping.

    I think the poster by the name of Might Gaine was selling them for $106 shipped. Still pretty pricey, but cheaper than you found him for.

    I can't believe you'd think about customizing such a rare figure. it's like someone kitbashing a botcon exclusive.

    Was this ever confirmed? There was speculation the yellow one was painted. Someone won the auction and was gonna let us know when they got it if it was actually yellow plastic or if someone just painted a red one.

    Definately - bad idea. Especially if it's not for a mainstream character.

    I wouldn't say it's a bad idea - not financially sound, but not something that shouldn't be done. It's just a toy, after all.

    Just make sure you know what you're doing and you don't screw it up. I personally would wait for a stateside release and save some $.

    Speaking from the perspective of accuracy, I don't like the idea. The Chevrolet Aveo comes in three door (hatchback) and four door (sedan) configurations, not two door. And I doubt that the sedan could be effectively be converted into the hatchback.

    Do as you wish, of course.
