There were no true fitment issues. Make certain you hog out the front clip stays on the hood. The hood on mine is rather tough but it fits well when down but I had to hog out the parts that glue to the underside a bit to make it transition. There are also very few places to glue the chassis to the body so make sure those are free of paint when you cement them as they are the only anchor points. Thanks for noticing the seats as well. I masked them with BMF and then had to touch up a bit anyway. Using two different paints allowed this. I used Duplicolor enamel for the white and then Tamiya for the stripes. This way i was able to clean up goblins with a little ammonia without affecting the white till I got it just right.
Going to MAMA meetings were very special to me. I enjoyed them and the friendships made. Lyle W and Norm Veber are now two people I count among friends. Plus one of my best friends of all time Billy B is another I met there as well. Now being in Mass again I realize how good i had it [I realized then though]. I could go up to Norm and order from him on the spot. He always brings tons to the meetings as well. Plus the discounted kits galore.
Looks like Masscar is getting a new member soon. if you're a member I'll see you there.
