How can I make a top body for a soapbox car without spending too much? Answered

There's a soapbox derby in July and I wanna make a car. Plywood floorboard is no problem but I don't know about 3D shapes. Any suggestions on something a kid (12) could make? Add other suggestions if you want.

You could use bamboo strips covered in canvas. It'd probably look crappy, but it'd be cheap, light and aerodynamic. Save your money for the best wheels and bearings you can afford.
