On my Gurney, there was a shim for that rear screw. It fell out rather easily, but luckily I had it on the bench.

Another reason why, at least, an exploded diagram of how the model is supposed to go together would be appreciated. But I didn't find such a shim in the bag of parts.

There are roll bar supports that run from the back of the hoop to either side of the intake. I've replaced the alien head with one from Immense Miniatures (yeah, my painting skills aren't the best...).

My kit has the front spoiler, perhaps it was missing in yours.

It is a little white nylon spacer. I glued mine to the shank of the screw so it does not get lost. Also there are two black spacers for the front posts to raise the nose a bit. I glued those to the body.

At the rear there's also that transmission "thing" piece that actas as a spacer between the frame and the body post. I glued it to the frame rather than to the body.
