Sanding Sealer - seals your pine wood before painting
Pine wood is a porous, soft wood. The first layer of paint will soak right into the wood and
Sanding Sealer will seal the wood giving you a deep shine when your final layer of paint is applied.
For an even better base, use two coats of sealer and lightly sand the first layer after it dries..

Thanks for the tips in the books. This was my 7 year old son's first Pinewood Derby race and I would have paid 100 times the price just to see the expression on his face when he took first place. Your information was invaluable!
