Well figured I would throw my hat into the mix. Enough has been said about the instructions, but I think Dave's Smugmug site with the pictures was a big help! I know in my house I've been accused of not ready instructions and with this model you've really got the read the manual versus just look at the pictures. OK, enough of that..............

You mean I will have to read the instruction????

Your build is looking good. I do have one question though, the seat bases....shouldn't they be swapped so the seatbelt latch is to the inside?

Looks really nice, Neil. Your MaxxForce is quite nice.

Shawn is correct, your seat bases are reversed. I know, you built it to the instruction booklet, but the instruction booklet is incorrect.

Yeah the one time I read the instructions they are wrong! I switched them around before I put the seats in.
