Pinewood Derby Acrylic Paints - Six colors!
You get six high gloss acrylic paints so you can make the coolest car ever!
Paints are water based for easy clean-up and they dry to a permanent finish.
They are non-toxic and clean up with water.
Big camel hair brush to make painting fast and smooth for a sharp finish.
Hint: Use masking tape to mark off areas of the car to paint in different colors.
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..
Clear Gloss Paint Sealer - protect your paint job!
Sealer protects your cool paint job from scratches, nicks, graphite smudges, dirt and finger prints.
Preserve your perfect paint job forever with a clear glossy seal."

Tips & Hints
Looking for a pinewood derby car design template? Select from over 30 of Pinewood Pro's award winning Pinewood Derby Car Designs. They include everything from race cars to Military cars to a Nike Sneaker!
The axle slots that are cut into standard blocks are too tight for BSA axles that are .089" diameter. Small axle slots make it difficult to get your axles in straight. A #44 drill bit is .086", which I find too tight. Consider a #43 Drill Bit, which is a perfect match at .089" for a snug fit.
Wood filler is your best friend when it comes to building a pinewood derby car. Use wood filler to fill holes, gouges and other cutting mistakes. You can even use it to add a bubble, racer cockpit, spoiler, etc.
Thank you for the great Pinewood Derby tips! My son was so excited when he got the 1st place trophy!

My son--a first time Pinewood Derby participant--won his Den, Pack, and District championships thanks to Pinewood Pro! Also won design and workmanship awards. Thanks, Pinewood Pro!
You guys are amazing. Thank you for such prompt attention. We will deal with you from now on. I have at least 9 more years of pinewood cars to make, and it's your products that will help us through them. Thank you soooo much!

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

I have a Webelo 1 and Webelo II Scout and they placed 1st and 2nd in this year's Pinewood Derby and will now go on to compete in the regional race. Thank you for all the good that you are doing and helping make kids dreams come true.

We downloaded Winning Pinewood Derby Secrets and began reading and working. We won first place overall in our Pack! Alex is a Webelos 2 this year, so it was our last chance and we won!
