Has anyone assembled a Jordan 1911 Model T delivery van?

    I've got the chasis assembled, and the carbody top assembeled. But when I try putting the top on the chasis, there is a small gap of about 1/32" between the bottom of the rear doors and floor of the chasis. It almost seems lite the floor is not long enough. Is there supposed to be another piece or bumper that goes in here, or have I done something wrong during assembly?

    Hmm. I haven't built that one, but you should be able to use a piece of .010" or .015" styrene to fill the gap. From your description, it sounds as if the gap is on the underside. Most of the Jordan kits fit together well, although some can be a bit fussy to do when the instructions are vague. The 1928 Model A has to be one of their best, and the 1940 Ford Sedan one of the worst, as far as fit goes. :rolleyes:
