    Today I was sitting on the couch and I hear something being thrown against my front door. I'm thinking it's the punk kids in my neighborhood (they've had paintballed my house before) and notice it was UPS. YAY! So, I quickly rip open the door, tell the man who I am and get the box inside. It finally came! WOOHOO! :mail 

    The package is MASSIVE. My dog is a boxer/beagle mix and it's slightly larger then him.

    And boy is it taped up GOOD. Takes me awhile with a pair of scissors to get the package open.

    I CAN SEE IT! By this time I'm laughing with glee! :D

    As quickly as I could, I carefully get it out of the package and this is what greets me. It looks like a clean break, something that had happened during shipping. So, I emailed the seller to see if it was broken before he shipped it (no response yet). Anybody have any suggestions on how to fix it? :cry  This is the ONLY problem with the car.

    Overall, the car came as described. It needs a really, really good cleaning which I can easily do with time and the stickers are nice and bright with only some wear. The only thing is the break. From how UPS handled the package at my door, I fear what the poor thing had to go through to make it here to the States. :(

    Use some JB weld on the break. That stuff works great, and the bond is as hard as steel.

    MegaMoonMan - Thanks for the suggestion. I'll definitely try that. :thumb 

    megatroptimus - $100 Which isn't all that bad considering they shipped it UPS and from England. Plus, this thing weighs quite a bit.

    Thanks everybody for the comments. :)

    Sucks about the break. Just use strong bonding glue and it should hold up. Are you going to ride in it? :lol

    Bummer about the break Alphie, but Im glad to see that it got across the pond safely... relatively.

    Id think either some contact cement or a top notch superglue would work well.

    Been cleaning it for the last ten minutes and most of the black you see is stained. The major cleaning is only on the seat. Guess you can say it's battle damaged Jazz. :lol

    Hmmm. Is there a way to mask off the decal parts and spray paint it white?

    Yeah, glad to hear you got it, finally, but too bad it's stained black. There must be a way to clean it even more...
