    Keith's Roadster 9443 Build

    Hi Keith here

    Began my build today by completing inventory. Only a couple of minor items missing

    Many Thanks to Scott for expertly getting his 18 wheeler into and out of our gated community. He made a difficult task look easy. He allowed be to help with the unloading (basically made me check off boxes to keep me out of the way.

    I was like a kid at Christmas

    I have been reading several other build threads to try to avoid the pitfalls for beginners

    Progress report.

    Inventory completed and missing in Kit order placed.

    Front suspension assembly carried as far forward as possible till I reached the point of installing the hubs which are on back order. So switched to rear end. Ran out of parts again so had to pause here too.

    Was going to start on the pedal box next

    No Photos until the sub assemblies are complete.
