Step 1: Wash the car

Make sure you scrub down the car with vinegar and remove all dirt. Your kids will love helping you with this part of the makeover. You will want to take off any stickers or decals that came with the car. Next, place the car on cardboard or a plastic mat to prevent paint from getting on the ground, in preparation for the next step.

Step 2: Paint the car

Wear latex gloves while using the spray paint to prevent it from getting on your fingers. Also wear a face mask so you don’t inhale any of the spray paint fumes. It is better to paint the undercarriage first, including the wheels, and then the inside of the car. The paint dries to the touch within 20 minutes.

Step 3: Finishing Touches

Make sure you allow the car to dry outside in a well ventilated area for at least 24 hours, and then wash it off before allowing your child to zoom off in it. Then apply the Batman decal and voila! You’ve got yourself a Batmobile!
