My son has that car. We picked it up for less than 10 bucks on clearance at target a few months back. The car is from the Ben 10: Alien Force series on cartoon network. It's a very neat toy, albeit it doesn't have a passenger seat or a rear seat so my son is upset he can't re-enact scenes from the show with his figures.
If someone wants to do a true mask re-imagine, the car needs to be painted red with black stripes:
- Disassemble the car and sand down joints and moveable pieces.
- Wash the piece and let dry for 24 hours.
- Mask Windshield and windows.
- Spray on Krylon fusion Red Pepper paint(2328) in smooth, even strokes about eight inches away from the piece. Begin spraying away from the piece and glide over the surface while spraying. Don't stop spraying until you are no longer spraying the surface of the piece. Repeat until an even coat has been applied.
- Let cure for, at least, three days. < IMPORTANT
- Tape off the racing stripes and apply Krylon Fusion Gloss Black Paint (2321). Repeat painting process outlined above.
- Let both paints dry for a full seven days to cure into the plastic. < IMPORTANT
- Apply details to the remaining body parts, inside and out. Lights, intake, trim, exhaust, tires, interior action features, etc.
- Let dry.
- Seal the piece with a gloss overcoat.
I don't know why i wrote all that.

Sweet! I so wanted to buy 1 but since it didn't fit legends scale I didn't cop it. Seeing yours makes me wish I did!
You're a dog! You can't see colors; like the colors of the American flag, COMMIE!
