Painted my mouse today

Hey guys, check this out. I've been toying with the idea for awhile and finally went for it. Piece of cake!!!


This is how it used to look. Nice...but just blended in too easily.





Now I can proudly display it on my desk at work.

I like the idea. We picked up some of these car mice offpost, but they didn't have any Camaros or Corvettes

Thanks guys. Like I said. I was bored and it sounded like fun. Working great and all the guys at work want one for themselves.

ActNup...I got mine on Amazon. You can get them from a number of places. Roadmice.com is a good place to start. Let me know which one you get.

How did you go about prepping it? Did you disassemble? I got a killer deal on one, but it's the cop car version. Thinking of painting it up

My wife actually bought me one a couple years ago (way before I bought my car) it is the silver with black like above. I was talking to her about a month ago regarding paintng it to match my car. Now I feel a lot better about my mental state. Great job, now I really want to paint mine.

I got the gold and black one. Got it for free so color choice was not an option. What paint did you use?
