Kub Kar

This was Blake's last Kub Kar Rally.  I'm so glad our stake does it again.  I think it is a wonderful father son activity.  Dave felt he had gotten a little flak last year from helping Blake to much. I said not to worry about it, that was the point of the project, but he was determined to not touch Blake's car this year.  So they built two.  Side by side.  Once again Blake loved every minute he got to spend with his dad and using the  power tools.  The only things Dave did was the first time they used the scroll saw he did some then turned it over to Blake.

We always cut our own wood pieces.  We have been given some pretty whompy blocks in the past.

Drawing design on wood blocks.

Seeing what it looks like with wheels.

Lots and lots of sanding.

Looking good.  Now for paint.

Primer first.

I think Blake said he won most of the rounds at the ward practice rally, but his car was a little heavy.  At the stake one he only won a few and didn't place at all.  At the end Blake and Dave raced their cars together.  Blake thought that was awesome!!

They have had fun.  Years 1, 2, and 3.  He keeps them on display in his room.  All pretty cool.
