    I know everyone here is in a lot of different groups so I wanted to get your guys opinion.. For Christmas I'm getting my 3 year old a Power Wheels and I am wanting to turn it into a Jurassic Park mod... because well its awesome.. and he loves dinosaurs (even though he will have no idea what JP is, i get to live vicariously!)

    I found some other people/threads online who have done the mod and I loved the way it turned out (see pictures)...

    So I guess my question for all you pros is do you think this would be too much for someone without professional equipment/help to take on by themselves? I'm wanting to try and get it done for Christmas but I also don't want it to turn out crappy...

    Pictures!

    I'm going suggest you contact Kevin at Colorado Movie Cars. I think he might be able to help you make this happen.

    I'm concerned about three year olds with remotes in their hands. Won't he run over your foot or something? Or maybe this is a "dad" toy to share with said three year old? LOL Looks like just a paint job and some stickers to transform it. Try ebay for stickers.

    Go for it dude. If you need any plastic for the hood I can get you some at cost. Also if you need the decals cut I can do that too. They would be layered.

    I say great idea :D Oh and DH's stickers are marine grade vinyl so it can be left outside.

    JJ, I'm not sure it's remote control, I think it's big enough for the kid to sit inside and really 'attack' the adults with it. I mean look at the size of it compared to the table.

    Yes. Power Wheels are vehicles kids actually drive.
