the kit goes together nice, but I dont agree on the order. They have you install the undertray as one of the first steps, and its in the way the entire build. That said, the only place it was truly a pain was in the steering assembly. There is a lot of flashing on parts, and the steering binds badly, so test fitting it is crazy with no access. Id build the cranks right before installing the top deck for sure.

Mines in one piece but that's as far as I've made it. Body is uncut and clear, and no electronics.

I left undertray and belt cover until last and fitted steering to top deck before fitting to chassis - much easier to tweak and threadlock. Steering pillars could do with being a little longer to save shaving the levers
