something I forgot to show was the organising of the parts I removed. Now from experience I can't stress this enough, I really try to keep things as well boxed and labelled as I can because when I come back to fitting all these parts its usually months after. And I always think at the time that I will just remember, but you never do haha

This 100% on the money and imperative advice.

I have fallen foul of not following it.

"Oh, I'll remember. I'll just take a few photos."

You don't remember, and you always miss the exact spot you need in the photo.

Little notes inside boxes or bags detailing position and order of parts is also very useful.

​I have taken pictures as I went of anything that I think is not obvious to put back together haha

Sandwich bags with the white square on and a sharpy is handy too, as you can bag up bolts and write a reminder to yourself eg: β€œlong bolts at the bottom of housing”

I had a mate that used to just launch it all in a big box and swore he would remeber......he never reassembled any of his project cars......ever lol.
