Ok I went to their website and entered a parts request. Hopefully they can get me a body fast enough!

OK I got a problem! I couldn't figure out why I couldn't eliminate the gap between the front inner fender and the front fender. I did some dissassembly and found that the whole body is warped! I will attach some pictures showing that the whole drivers front fender is jacked up about 1/2 to 3/4" while the passenger side is mostly flush all the way from front to back.

I'm pretty bummed out about the whole thing!

The only thing I can think of is to heat up the whole body and see if I can get it straight!

I was thinking of attempting to contact Monagram and seeing if they would replace the body? Have any of you guys attempted this? If not does anyone have a body available? I really need to get this body in paint ASAP I've got to have it done by x-mas!

Help I need ideas!

However on the plus side my wife scored a kit at the Good Will for 2 bucks! However she made the mistake of telling my son it was for him! I think were gonna build it and when he gets tired of it I'm going to tear it appart and build a pro streeter out of it!

Good work! The devil is in the details when you are building a stock appearing car like that!
