I never got a guide, just a free headache ! IIRC start by attaching the small end of the blades overlapping to the same side everytime and yes then go around a bend? prize the blades so that you can screw them together :goodluck: my mini grostar was worth the extra money as it is one peice and saves an 'all thumbed up sheep' from this nonsense !

this is how you lay out the bits & when your bolting the petals together, you over lap them on the one side when fixing them together

I spent ages figuring out how to put the damn thing together. It was painful. This should be a sticky.

Good guide.

Built mine yesterday and found that not fully tightening the nuts until all were fitted mace it a lot easier.

ive seen it done both ways but i didnt realize that the reflector is slightly larger with the plates fitted

to the top of the centre piece like the way i did it.

so how did you get on with it dt ?

took apart and rebuilt today, sits lots better with plates fitted under the center piece, the plates dont ben in the corners at the bolt holes and less light gap :king:
