Preparing the Pinewood Derby Car

Posted: October 20, 2014 in Around the House, Cub Scouts, Weekend Activities

February 28, 2014: Yep, these guys waited until last minute to get their cars made for the Pinewood Derby 🙂 Personally, I think these two work best under pressure and love to watch me self destruct because of the stress they cause me by waiting until last minute.

B makes Z take a major role in making his car each year. Z always comes up with his personal spin on what his car should look like. This year he wanted his initials craved out in the center of the car. What a great idea! I love his design! Z had to be very careful when he worked with the dremmel tool. SInce he carved out so much of the car, they had to load liquid weights into the back of the car. Hubby makes Z do the melting. I know I should be nervous watching Z work the torch but instead I am all in the way trying to get the perfect pictures. Because it is all about the pictures, right!

The other car shown below was B’s car, he named it “Biohazard”.
