1) Trial parts to make sure you know exactly how the part fits before gluing it, or trying to modify it to make it fit., 2) Don't trial fit parts in such a way that you can't get them apart again for permanent assembly. 3) LET THE PAINT DRY COMPLETELY BEFORE YOU TOUCH IT, DAMMIT!! (sorry, I'm a little sensitive about that one, D'oh! (slaps head)....)
