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.
When painting with children, it is better to use a paint brush rather than spray paint because spray paint can cause vapors. If the child is spray painting, be sure to use a breathing mask and be in an open area.

My son's car won every heat it raced. Thanks again Joe. Your info is the best out there!
Using the tips on your website, Daniel's car won every race for his den, and won the district races. It seemed that his car got faster with every run. We have memories that will last.
I ordered a set of your BSA wheels and axels last minute on Wednesday for overnight delivery. Our race was on Friday. We finished in 6th out of 80 cars, and will be going to the Divisional Race! My son was never happier! Thanks again!
