Don't put a round peg (axle) in a square hole! Axle slots are square but your axles are round, making it difficult to get them to go in straight. Use a drill press or the PRO Driller to redrill the axle slot so you have a straight round hole to insert your axles
Put a coat of wood primer on your car before painting it because pine wood is porous and will absorb the first coat of paint. Lightly sand the primer after it dries, then apply a final coat (or two) for a clean, finished look.
