Default How to customize the PTE FAV

this tread is so you can learn from my mistakes. I destoryed one already to figure this out so take your time.
see ThinkTanks/My review
http://www.joedios.com/dioramas/sho...php?i=29971&c=9

As you can see, the FAV has alot of parts. the winch alone has 7 parts.
the FAV is held togather by 14 screws, hole/pins and LOTS of glue.
1st: remove all loose parts, guns, Jerry cans and tools
2nd: 6 screws on the bottom hold the lower chassis to the body. the winch string is still atached to both parts, the middle 2 screws also hold in the seats
3rd: seats, front lightbar, marker lights, rear bumpers are not glued and can be removed


NOTES
engine parts are glued in
4 more screws and glue hold together the 2 main body pieces
2 screws +glue hold the rollbar/roof to the upper body
glue also hold the a,b,c pillers to the roof. the windshield is glued to the A pillers
the winch has 2 part glued to the upper body
2 screws hold the dash in, glue hold the instrument panel on the dash
the front gun mount pin is glued in
a pin is use for the spare tire
engine grills are glued
top turret uses pins and a little glue( rear black piece)
radio comm, shifter and hand brake are just peg-ins
a lot of glue is use and can glue other parts together so be carefully
i used a hairdryer to loosen up the glue before prying thinks a part.
if any ?s just ask. I will add some pics as i take my next one apart
