Back wheels

Creating the axles:

  • Cut out two 22mm x 42mm pieces of cardboard.
  • Find the middle of each piece and pierce with bamboo stick.
  • Hold rig under the truck where wheels will go and pull pieces out until they are at the ends of the base.
  • Take a pencil or pen and mark on both sides of the piece on the bamboo stick to keep the distance correct.

Attach Wheels

  • Measure 2 cm away from each end mark where cardboard pieces were.
  • Break off ends of bamboo stick at the most recently drawn mark.
  • Place cardboard pieces back on bamboo stick.
  • Put hot glue in wheel hold and push wheels into place one at a time making sure they are upright and holding until firmly in place.
