I gotta AMT 68 gt500 and the body has been cut below the driver door from the wheel well to the middle of the door. I haven't the slightest clue how to fix it and do it right. I'd much rather trade the whole kit to a pro.

Hi, Jesse. Just a little word of advice. never use a .bmp file online. They are a very inconsiderate and inefficient bitmap format with no compression. A .jpg file is compressed and doesn't strain the lesser-connected members here. This file actually started installing a program on my computer trying to figure how to view it. I'm a graphics oriented user and I never use /bmp's.

I did see your sketch and think I see your problem. Looks like the lower part of the body was cut off. I'd suggest using pieces of .04" plastic sheet to replace it, using the opposite side as a guild if that is still possible, Backup the joints with other pieces of plastic, epoxied if you can.
