Well I haven't been active on the forums for quite a long time, but I have an idea for my first 1:18 model modification projecting using an AUTOart Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 FL2 as a base. I have a question on how I would remove the roll cage of the model? I have seen Rob's disassembly on how to disassemble an AUTOart Aventador Roadster, but only difference is that there is only opening doors, the hood and engine compartment are sealed. If anyone can help, just comment down below on this post.

Well you have to remove the body from the chassis and thatíll give you access to the interior. Thatís pretty much it.

Well instead of starting a new topic I'd figure i would just continue on this topic. Well I am almost done with my modification project (I am a noob at modifying models so yes it obviously looks very bad to be honest) but anyway I am having trouble reassembling the model, I cannot get the front axle back into place on the model. Any help will do, I have provided pictures to show my issue. https://dogg.imgbb.com/ https://dogg.imgbb.com/

Fyi for some reason this site doesn't like .jpg image files that's why I had to post the link the website.

Have you tried mounting the front axle on the underbody instead?  Are you sure that itís facing the right way?

Yes I am doing it on the under body and yes it is facing the right way as the rear axle is fitting just fine. I can show some pics of the original model before I modified it

The wheels with the red colored center locked nut should be on the left side of the model if your looking from behind.

When I was taking apart the P1, the front axle wouldnít just stay on the body or the underbody. It needed both. It was very hard to orient. So either you need that or youíre missing some other plastic piece that keeps it in place

Should I be concerned about the left screw hole on the front axle from this image above?

That looks busted a bit and may be making it more difficult but it still should work

Do these cars have a steering wheel that turns with the front wheels? The hole looks like it's for the steering rod to go into, is it? If so, the car is LHD but you have that hole on the right hand side and also facing upside down. Are you sure you're putting the axle on the right way round?

Well I was able to fix my problem, I finished the model. The set of wheels and the back of the model sit a little wonky in the back, but no big deal for me since I am still a noob at modifying models. It looks mediocre at best I'd say (to be honest you guys would probably laugh at what I did). But anyway thanks mates for helping out.

First efforts are always laughable. Hell Iíve been modding for years and some of the stuff I do still makes me cringe
