that was a nerve racking 10 minutes!.....ive never peeled masking tape off so gently!.....i was sure it would snag and rip the paint off back to the plastic since theres no primer

the canopy is stuck on with the tiniest teeniest amount of glue....the centre bit will go on in the open position if t dosnt fit well closed

Hi Paul
Watching with interest. Looks like it went together nicely. Well done with the masking. Like you I would have worried about the paint coming away as there is no primer.
