 This wood toy car is going together very nicely and I think it will go weel with the panel truck.

The patterns are attached to blue painter's tape with 3M77 spray adhesive. The pattern on the back piece above is for a jig to locate the fenders. I will save the jig for future use. Is it worth the trouble to make the jig for one car. Yes, absolutely. Trying to get the fenders aligned on both sides without a jig is difficult at best.

I can cut this on my bandsaw, and it is much faster, but this is offset by the significantly increased amount of sanding I would need to do.

There is always some sanding to do. This is especially true when using softwoods.

Fenders are aligned and glued on using a jig. Using the jig assures the fenders are as close to the same on both sides as possible. It is much easier to do this way.
