Ready to do some cutting and drilling. And a "Quick N Easy 5 Truck Fleet" for my grandson. He gets two of the cars too. I'm not sure how I'm going to drill the headlight and tail light holes. To me it looks like a job tailor made for the Shopsmith horizontal boring feature.

Horizontal boring would do the trick. 
Here is a pic of the jig I made for my drill press for drilling headlight holes etc. 
Quick and easy to set up and use. I just clamp it to my drill press table and nudge it into position.
Since this pic was taken, I have put some stick on grip tape on the face. The tape that is used on stairs etc. I found the pieces slid around a bit when clamping.

Very solid set up Rod, here’s a topic where I addressed drilling for the headlights. The second photo shows the drilling but I must add I clamp the piece in a vise most of the time. http://forums.toymakingplans.com/post?id=8157435

I wanted to drill before cutting out the bodies but the spray adhesive I used to glue on the patterns grabs so tight that I could not get them square to an edge reliably. I still haven decided how I'm going to do it.
