Cardboard Race Car

Step 5: Get the dowels ready!

Approximate where the axle dowels will go (just wooden dowels, really cheap at any arts and crafts or hardware store).

Cut holes in the front hood and rear end of the car with a knife or x-acto blade so that they are large enough to fit the dowel through, and straight. 

Take measurements for the wheel size (mine were 9.5 inches in diameter)
(next step is wheels)

DO NOT GLUE THE DOWELS (AXLES) ONTO THE CARDBOARD FRAME OF THE CAR, OR ANYTHING FOR THAT MATTER EXCEPT THE WHEELS!
