Stages 11 to 21 now completed, no problems but be careful with the distributer leads. had to use a little glue to secure them in place.

Nice job. Did you glue in the battery leads too? There are replacement cables provided in Stage 59 that are pointed to the left instead of to the right, which makes them fit better when installed into the car body.

Great work :)
How do you find the gear shift lever? In my opinion that's the most fiddly part of the whole build; I wasn't able to assemble it without CA glue.

Thanks for the comments, the Gear lever assembly took a little play to get it right. What i found best was to insert the base first into the body of the car, lining up the small projection, then i added the gaiter and finally the lever.
