Pretty helpful advice I received from JScullin:
I used a Dremel and drilled through the screw at the bottom. That lets you separate the body, window & chasis for easier painting.

Sand the body & repaint, paint the windows (or buy the Yu-Gi-Oh Coug w/tinted windows), swap the rims from your Hotwheel of choice.

Then just glue it back together and voila!

I got one of those 1:43 scale ones recently. the only color I could get was the laser red.
I haven't attempted painting it yet.
It's gonna be a real PITA considering all the little plastic parts.
Need a steady hand to mask things off. lol
actually I think the hardest part will be sanding the existing clearcoat.

Pep Boys has them too, but they seem to become rare now.

Your best bet is to go into toy stores such as KBToys or Wal Mart Toy department. These stores are usually trashed, and hot wheels are in displays all over (yeah, the floor usually too.)

They rarely give a damn, and just throw more in there. Your chance of finding one at KB or somewhere like it (Toys R Rus) is 95% chance. :)

I recently only found the Yugioh one at Fao Schwarz in Orlando. It came in a 3 pack... Seems to be rare, like the larger ones.

They're on ebay all the time too, so you might want to check that out.
