Picked up this one in its original box. The body seems very accurate and well shaped, easy to sand. Anyone built one of these? Also, is there a better instruction guide to putting the tube chassis etc together, like a step by step guide, as the instructions provide no clue what to assembler 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.

Steve,

I rebuilt this JoHan "Rambunctious" Challenger a couple years ago.
Not the kit decals or front wheels.

I don't remember any problems with the chassis.
Johan funny car kits were very good ones to build.

Geez, never thought about using directions. ;) I've built these before and usually just start from the inside out, like the real deal. Ya gotta have a chassis to hang stuff from, so that's where I start. Just look for things that would go in a logical order. Don't forget about painting various pieces and parts so you can add them as needed.
Not much help, huh?? :o :(
