Take your time with this one. The separate roof, door, windshield/cowl can be a bit fiddley.

Little update... just got all of the suspension put together. all of it was chrome so i decided to use 5 min. opoxi to glue it all together to i have a nice sturdy suspension. i plan on weathering the chrome a little bit as well.

I like it very much! Are you planning on doing any weathering to the body or will it be shiny? I'm sure it will look great either way. Instead of using the kit hinge pins you may think about doing some in brass rod to stiffen them up. Otherwise the doors may sag.

Later-

Little update on the surf wagon. painted the frame flat black and the suspension flat aluminum and painted the firewall flat black. i plan on weathering it by misting some sand color on there and put some real sand on there as well. hope you like...
