As I’ve already mentioned I am a big fan of Pinterest and like most ‘pinners’ I’ve gone a little crazy over all the things I am definitely going to do aftering seeing someone else’s amazing handiwork on their boards.
However, I have actually been doing a few things but I am very excited about then project I set Mr Johnson onto after seeing this pin. Yes, we have created little Baby Jay his very own custom Batman Car.
Baby Jay and his Batman Car
I cannot really express how cool this thing is. The kid next door has been trying to convince Baby Jay to swap his Batman Car for a regular Kiddy Car but so far Baby Jay has not been swayed*.
We bought a second-hand Cosy Coupe from ebay. The Coupe is avaliable to buy from most good toy retailers and you can usually get them secondhand on Gumtree or from local second hand toy shops very cheaply.
Husband then dismantled the car so he could spray paint it with some Black Satin Plasti-Kote which is available from good hardware stores. We chose this as it’s hard-wearing which is important because the car will be living outdoors and it gives fantastic colour. We used two cans of this.
More Tw0-Face than Batman!
The Plasti-Kote offers excellent coverage
Once the car was sprayed it was just a matter of putting it back together and scoring some Batman vinyl stickers and a Gotham City Registration Plate to finish the effect.

*Don’t feel too sorry for the kid next door. He’s asked us to make his car into a Spiderman Custom and I think he’ll probably get his wish before the year is out.
