Assemble your Pinewood Derby Car Paint and Display Stand. It's as easy as ABC!

Tip #74

Small Nails can be used to add weight to cars that are slightly under the 5 oz limit. Use brad nails or finishing nails with the small heads. Pound the nails into the back of the car to lessen the chance of splitting. You can also pound the nails into the side or bottom of the car but it is best to drill a pilot hole first to prevent splitting. If you are inserting the nails into the back of the car make sure that the nail is flush with the block so that you don’t make the car longer.
