Fourth, Twist the Light Wires Together

Gather  the bare ends of each color together.Turn the Pinewood Derby car upside down and with the circuit board laying loosely in the cavity with the battery side facing DOWN. Sort the red and blue wire ends so that they are near each other.

Collect and align the bare blue wire ends between your fingers as shown in the picture and twist them tightly around each other all the way to the end of the bare portion. Then bend the wires into a hooked shape.

Similarly, collect the bare ends of all four red wires together in the same way and twist them together, forming a second hook.

When you are finished it will look like the picture to the left. You are almost done and will connect the wires to the circuit board in the next step.
