Wrecked 1/16 ferrari

I'm on again with another Ferrari this time it's a 1/16. I bought this a while back it was advertised with a small crack in the body. That was an understatement and a half. The roof has a huge crack one of the rear pillars is missing., and the rear panell is cracked. I got this out today in the intention of sticking it back on evil bay to sell on to someone else.

But something grabbed me and "BING" like a lightbulb I managed to vision it repaired and thought I'd be aswell give it a go. The engine has been made up(quite badly) so that's in the freezer. Not sure how long it has to go in there for?? And the body is taped up until I start the body work. This is way past my level of skill. So please tell me if I'm doing wrong. And ANY advice would be gratfully heard. Anyway enough of all the rant here's the pics.

Too bad about the body. From what I see in the box, it would make a great model.B)

Turn it into a Spyder and avoid some of the drama.If you do use liquid cement for the crack,do reinforce the joint from underneath,but I recommend CA glue for that.

Work started on trying to rescue the body it was worse than i fist thought. Not only is there a huge crack down the roof. But both pillars on one side are gone. So

I taped all the body parts on just to see what is needed. And began work on the new pillars. They won't be perfect but I will try my best to get as near as possible.

With both pillars missing either side of where the glass will be.

Work started on fuesta pillar. I know it doesn't look much progress but it's somthing.

Please could someone tell me how long to leave the glued parts in the freezer? Thanks Craig
