I have just sat down as i have been busy today.. And took a closer look at the parts and there is some problems with mine the coating is coming off one part and where these have come from the mould its not finished off properly .. also i have noticed this can be easily marked and scratched ... so becareful and the 00 screwdriver is way too small for me so i have ordered off ebay one of these ..http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... K:MEWAX:IT

Even if it is an 'economy jobbie', nice that they've given you a screwdriver from the outset.

The screwdriver supplied is about 2" long red hard moulded (looks like something out of a christmas cracker) .. what with my fat fingers :o ..

At least i know now what to do with the test issue is brought .. hopefully by the time deagostini send theres i will get a grip of it ..

Jay, with doing both this & the DB5 - haven't you got yourself any decent ones yet? - I got some off "evil Bay" awhile back, thought I can't remember where from :oops: Alternatively you could go to the website for the McLaren and pay (I hate to think what) for their tool kit - Hopefully no Wallets will be effected by this post ..... :roll: :lol:

Right .. while a quick rain shower stops play in the garden, I decided to have a go at the mclaren as the db5 needs a lot more time to do..

Here's some pics of the parts and my progress from parts 1&2
