Instructable spinoffs?

I created an Instructable a while ago for my Black Widow Hearse and after posting it just wasn't happy with it and thought that maybe I should have done each part of it in it's own Instructable.  Would it be acceptable to do that now and should I still keep the original one up to show how I used it or just include a pic of the Black Widow Hearse all put together at the end of each Instructable?

You could just tidy-up the one you have.
Since it's already there, there's little value in removing it, but the separate parts could be useful for people wanting to do smaller projects.

Of course that's acceptable.

Leave the original up, but edit it to include links to the new Instructables in the appropriate steps.

I think it would work to split it up into a serial format, i.e. Black Widow Hearse Part I - The Hearse, Part II - The Horse, Part III - The Driver (or however you divide it up), and end with Part ?? - Putting It All Together.
Or you could do entirely new Instructables like - Corpsing a Blucky, Making a Zombie Reindeer, etc. and include links to the existing Black Widow Hearse as additional illustration of the concepts.
If you do decide to re-do the hearse one in parts, I'd remove the old one just for clarity's sake.
