Yes, it does make for some imaginative assy... but isn't that half the fun? It was packaged well and there was no damage/scratches etc. There will be some extra screws etc left over but hey...rather have this than be looking for them. The lights installation was the most finicky for me but some shoe goo and a few tie wraps and all was good. Overall I am happy with the product, for the price, and the end result.
