Sturdiness Kit for buildme's VW Golf Mk1 Cabrio




Rebrickable user buildme has made this great model of the classic VW Golf Mk1 Cabriolet. Besides the overall cool look, I love in particular the richness of details, such as pedalry, nicely shaped dashboard, engine, and more. And it comes with very clear and accurate PDF instructions from buildme.

However, there were some things with weak connections that I wanted to be fixed. So I did many changes on the Golf, which are invisible after the change - except of the mudguards, which I placed one plate higher, for more freedom beteen wheel and mudguard. This means, buildme's great design is fully kept.

The good news are: It can be done with no extra parts!

(A note to the inventory: The Golf Cabrio can be done with the parts of a 10242 set, including all spare parts that are in the set but not in the official 10242 inventory, plus a steering wheel #2819, 24mm diameter, which was already added by buildme.)

The question is: How can I share my result with the community, without compromising the instructions sold by buildme? – Finally I didn't made full instructions, but a text-and-pictures documentation about the changes.

So, Here comes my sturdiness kit. To build the Golf Cabrio, you still need to buy the instructions from buildme (PDF available, please note the "pay with paypal" link at the last page of buildme's PDF) plus my sturdiness kit, which shows you what to change (and which is for free).

The result will be a great looking VW Golf Cabrio with great sturdiness.
