I'm building a set of Fat Fendered Freaky Ford toy cars from pine wood. The Panel Wagon is probably going to be my favorite.

I use blue painter's tape on the wood so I can remove the patterns easily. The painter's tape sticks a bit too well and will sometimes damage the wood by pulling off some fibers. However, it is fast and easy.

Here the panel truck is ready for finishing. I haven't yet decided what finish to use. I'm not too fond of stains. I'm leaning toward a polyurethane or clear shellac. Polyurethane has a long cure time, but it does a fine job of bringing out the grain.

Other options include my oil and beeswax blend, Watco Danish Oil, or acrylic paint. These are very smooth, and I'm tempted to leave them bare wood.
