So this is how I've received it so far its not all here as he's still collecting the series.



So some issues he's had while building the series, one of the lugs will not come out of its location



Massive gap along the rear seam.



Joins not aliening correctly.

So first job was to just strip it all down to the main frames and rebuild...

While removing sections, I found a wire had been caught under and pinched and believed that was the reason for the gap along the seam.



And after removing all the sections this is where I ended up.



In case my friend is looking in sorry it had to be done LOL LOL

And this is what I was left with all bagged up into sections.

So the rebuild starts, I've checked all sections and retightened all the screws.



Found most of them was slightly loose and needed a little turning.

Sorted out the wiring.



Panels looking better, but not 100% the fitting of these is horrible so the panels end up where they are no room to move.





Rear seam now looking a lot better.



And these seam look a lot better now, I had to file it a little.
