Pinewood Derby Paint Sets!
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
If you have a bad wheel and you don't have time to replace it, Raise that Wheel so it doesn't touch the track. Since it doesn't touch the track, it won't have any negative affect on your car's speed.
Nyoil stays on your axles throughout the race, unlike powdered graphite that blows off every time your car goes down the track. This gives Nyoil coated axles a speed advantage if your car keeps racing.
A warped block is ok, as long as your axles are square to the block. Use the PRO Driller Tool to drill perfectly straight axle holes which insures your car will roll straight.

This is my son's first Derby car as a Tiger Cub Scout. We had a lot of fun working on this together. Even though he didn't place it was a rewarding experience. Next year we plan to build something even more unique and perhaps a little more challenging. Thanks for a great web site!

My son, won his pack derby today on our first attempt! He won 9 races in a row and none of them were even close. Thanks for your assist in this father & son memory.
