Hi. There is no substitute for time. Follow the manual completely and take your time! Most important things are making accurate measurements (use calipers!) remove all plastic flashing from components. Make sure all suspension hinge pins are free so that suspension arms drop under their own weight! Spend the effort here as it will pay dividends later on. It might also pay to review the respective forum thread for the car you are building as you may find kit specific build tips which may help.

Above all enjoy the build!
