  • CARS_step_by_step_3

    Now to cut the visor. Draw a line approximately a quarter of the way down the top of the box from the front of the car and another line approximately a quarter of the way from the back of the box as seen in the picture.

  • CARS_step_by_step_4

    Cut down the middle of the area you’ve just marked out, removing one section and folding the other half up so it looks like a windscreen. This will be where Lightning McQueen’s eyes go.

  • CARS_step_by_step_5

    Stick the section you just removed to the back of the car with glue to form a spoiler.
