This is the time of year when you go the extra mile to do something nice for others. For some people that means holding the door open for a stranger, volunteering at a soup kitchen, cooking a meal for some friends, or searching for an extra special gift.

But, that gift doesn”t always have to be a brand new, fresh-off-the-shelves, item. This person found a Barbie jeep and decided to turn it into the perfect gift for a friend”s son. Because, what kid doesn”t want an awesome jeep?

The pink and purple color palette and Barbie stickers would have to go.

This must have been nerve-racking, trying to avoid mistakes seeing as a child would be driving this thing around.

But in the end, the jeep came out perfectly.
