  • While lots of attention is paid to the perfect paint job, but many builds have problems with basic fit and finish. We discuss common problems:

  1. Seams

  2. Glue Marks

  3. Bad Fitting Glass

  4. Ill fitting hoods (especially with too much paint)

  5. Raised wheels

  6. Chassis that don’t fit (clearance issues)

  7. Engines that are too high

  8. High rider suspensions

  9. Sprue marks

  10. Damaged chrome

  11. Missing panel lines
