What he meant was, no decals (They were worthless anyhow), no mold line removal (They were minimal, why can't they do that today?), and no fixing of any flaws in the kit. He wouldn't even allow me to clean up the parts when I removed them from the sprues, so I worked very carefully, and it came out nicely, even without painting!
Being that the customer is always right, I built it the way he wanted, but begged him to let me polish the plastic, and paint the driver's goggles, visor, and the plate he sits on, so he allowed that much. This kit went together beautifully, and Robert was extremely happy with it when I delivered it to him,. He took it for one lap around his track, then put it in his display case, never to be driven again!
