Turning wheels with metal axles

RELATED TOPICS: WHEEL
Tip: I always liked the look of parked cars that have the front wheels turned, and I came up with a way to do it using metal axles.

I make sure the front metal axle is long enough for the job. I'll slide it into place, mark with a pencil where it comes out through the hole, take it back out, and bend the axle on the mark (not too far, because it doesn't look right). Now do the same to the other side.

Slide the axle back through, (you'll have to work with it a little, but with patience, you can get it through). Set it level, and install your wheel/tire combo.
