What you will need & Instructions:
1. An empty twelve pack soda cardboard dispenser like Coke or a Pepsi may have. On the Coke box which holds 12 cans one end of the box is perforated already, so the box itself becomes sort of a canned dispenser.
2. When done with the beverage, leave the box empty as is. Separate 6 empty cans, and put the back to empty cans toward the rear of the soda case in an even manner. Take the other two empties and put them both toward the front of your truck. The last two cans are you trucks front wheels. Space them out as a real road truck would have best you can.
3. The easiest and cheapest way to secure these cans/wheels for me was to spray glue them from the bottom of the box to the top of the 6cans. You may still have a little time before the glue dries to balance or secure this trucks can”wheels.”
4. All the tops of the can wheels should be facing the same direction. Can bottoms on one sise, the can’s tops on the opposite side of the truck
5. If your can case of twelve sodas was like mine, the rear of the truck will have folded in edges. By carefully separating these edges, this will result in two truck doors which can open and shut.
The front of the truck with the perforation torn out will resemble the front of a truck or even a Train’s engine.

Always consult an expert first with any questions pertinent to a DIY project. Regardless of this I’m busted and have no money. (not worth a lawsuit) but the writer is not a sociopath and cares about people. So use common sense and have fun. Perhaps not a toy for little kids unless attended. Use common sense. This is not an endorsement of either product used for this project
Total Cost :Glue spray and 12 pack of cans less than 7 bucks. You may have what you need already, and you can figure your own application for securing your wheels if you want. The wheels will not roll independantly for this project.
First time:Less than 1 hour. Glue needed one night to dry. Use caution and ventilation when using an adhesive agent. Have an adult you trust help you. Easy and fun. Cheap and cool looking too.
