ferrep63 - Welcome to the forum.

The Tribute Z3 based builds give the impression that the strip down process is quite straight forward.

It will be good to see how the DNA kit goes together.

Feel free to post lots of photos, as build threads need photos.

Good luck, Paul.

I posted this message on a few threads recently, but the principle is the same.

Hope it helps, Paul.

If I click on the attachment "DSC03889.jpg" then you can see both the photo and an "address" at the top of the screen:

http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/foru...2&d=1463770556

If you put [img] in front of that address and then [/img] at the end, the photo will appear in the post.

So the code will look something like this:

[img]http…..0556[/img]

And this will be how it will appear.

Good look with the build will be interesting to see 1 come together.

Maybe there should be a section on here for DNA builds as tribute and berini have???

If there is enough interest from builders for a separate DNA section (come forward lurkers ) then I will create a new section.
