The front post was also removed to make room for the engine (2 engines from a Screamin Hauler glued together)

This car is completely glued together, and the windshield didn’t fit anymore. It was pushing the interior in a way that wouldn’t let it all come together.

Not counting the wheels or axle tubes there were 7 pieces all attached with glue. The windshield would have been 8. What a pain in the butt!

The clear coat totally destroyed the paint on the engine.

It is Wednesday, so a wheel swap to appease the Lald overlords.
