First of all, put 2 skewers across the milk carton, the length must be longer than the width of the milk carton. Make sure you place the milk cartoon vertically. The skewers will be used as the axle. After you're done, get the 4 bottle cap and make a hole at the center with a power drill. Install the skewers to the bottle cap. Each skewer will have 2 bottle caps at the end.

Place the axles a few inches from the top of the milk carton, and a few inches up from the bottom one. After the steps are done, you can customize your miniature car by painting it with paint.
