Introduction: Recycled Gravity Car
In this Instructable you will be making a gravity car from recycled components.
You will need:
- stone or piece of clay or blu tack,

- three wheels,

Use pliers to bend the 2 mm metal wire to make the hands.
Step 2: Attach the Front Wheels
Use nail and hammer to make to holes the wheel rod and attach the wheels.

Attach the back wheel with metal wire. Note how I tied the rope to the wheel. The hose pieces are optional. You can use a straw or even nothing if you use a thick metal wire.
Step 4: Attach the Head
Punch a hole with a nail or screw driver. Do it slowly to prevent injury and do not apply force. Put the hole on top of the can.
