Paint for your Pinewood Derby car. It's as easy as ABC!

Tip #25

Use a final gloss clear paint coat to give your car an extra shine. Some people use car wax but clear paint gives better results.

Tip #28

You will get better results if you give your car several light coats of paint rather than one or two thick coats.

Tip #34

Sand your car lightly after the first coat of paint dries. This will smooth out any raised grain and give your car a smoother finish.

Tip #49

If your Pinewood Derby race uses a judge to determine the winner of each race instead of an electronic timer, paint your car red. It will give your car a psychological advantage and may give you the win in a very close race.

Tip #55

For an extra smooth finish, spread a very thin layer of wood putty on the car with your fingers before painting. Let dry then sand until smooth. The putty will fill any irregularities in the wood.
