Second Chance Redlines

Monthly Newsletter - July/August 2023

Welcome to our Monthly Newsletter!

Hello hobby friends! Here's the Second Chance Redlines Newsletter. It has been HOT in Texas! We have been out on a 3500 mile motorcycle tour this past month. We rode to Montana and toured through 6 states. Most of the time we were in cooler weather but getting out and back home through Texas was Hot, 109 degrees when we arrive home and our air-conditioner out!


We will no longer accept PayPal as a form of payment. You can still use your debit, credit card, Goggle Pay, Apple Pay, and others. We have used Stripes as one of our merchant options from the beginning of launching our website and have decided to use them as our main source for handling our payments.

We're sorry if this causes any inconvenience. If PayPal is your preferred way to pay you can still purchase from our eBay store using your PayPal account.


We finally implemented our Messaging feature on our website. You can now send messages to directly to us. You will find the a link to 'My Messages" page under 'My Account' once you are signed in. Messages will generally be answered quickly during working hours. Messages received after 5:00 PM CST will be answered the following day.

Please do not use eBay messaging to send us questions about our website business.

We've surpassed 1500 decals and are continually adding to our library. You will find the latest decals added to our catalog under the New button on the home page of our website. This section showcases decals that have been added within the last 30 days.

Free Decal

Send us a high resolution glamour shot of your build on a solid background (like the example here). The image should be at least 1024x768.

If we use it as an EXAMPLE on our Website in our Decal Display Ad, we will give you a free decal. Send it here. Put FREE DECAL in the subject and the SCR number you are submitting it for.

If it's a picture you just want to share or we do not use it for our ad, we will post it in our gallery or share it in our newsletter.


We have hundreds of parts and supplies for restoring Hot Wheels Redlines as well as creating customs. We are continually adding new items. We are working to create new 3D printed and Metal items to add to our collection of parts.

Our Mailing Policy

We process orders Monday through Friday, mail goes out by 11:00 AM CST. If we get an order before this time, it will ship same day. Orders received over the weekend may not go out until the first of the week, Monday or Tuesday.

Tip of the Month

Recently we added some new paint to match the solid colors of Hot Wheels released in 1973. We named these paints, Retro-Flame 73. Unlike the Retro-Flame Candy Colors, these paints Require the use of Hardener. If you do not use the hardener, the paint will not dry properly. We also added a silver basecoat paint that can be used as an undercoat for our Candy Colors.
