So, I started off with a box of car bits (Sound familiar Clockie?)



First job - get it rolling...

Rear Axle going in..



Then the front



Got a rolling shell already



Installed the Dash Instruments while I still had easy access



Next, I assembled the doors - door lock now fitted



And door fitted to rolling shell



Next up was the roof... first of, the front uprights fixed into place



Then the rear and the Targa style roof



Eyes (huh?) then fitted



Then got on with the steering wheel, column and horn (wheel curiously not attached to the front wheel in anyway!)



Next up, the fuel filler cap (there is no fuel tank, just a filler cap - odd!)



Headlights went on next



And then the tail lights



Got to be able to start the imaginary engine which runs on air...



I thought this would look more at home on SuperDry to be honest, but it was part of the kit so I stuck it on here..



Finished!



Just need to install a small child and we're done!



Job Jobbed


Come on now Clockie... there's still time before VoWo!! lol!
