Thanks, I ordered one. Now I just need a yellow cowl I'm actually excited to tackle the motorbox, I've never done one this bad.

The motorbox kits go together pretty easily, just like a puzzle. Just take your time getting the old pieces out. Use debonder if necessary, but my last one didn't really need it. With a little patience and a hobby knife, I was able to get everything out without the mess of debonder. Breaking away (carefully) smaller pieces helps. After you get all the old pieces out, clean up any old glue residue to ensure good smooth fitment of the replacement pieces. Trial fit them in so you can see how they will need to go back together and in what order. With a little patience, your airframe will be as good as new.

Good luck!
