  1. Stage 56, attaching the front wheels to the car: First, I join the wheels together with the rod assembly. Position like the picture and use a screw to attach. The screw is tough to screw in tightly, but this is ok as if it is too tight the wheel wont turn smoothly: The other wheel joins to the rod assembly at the same place, with one screw: Now the rod assembly fits into the car. There are two places that join to the car. The first is the tube shape the goes into the rod on the car in yellow. Then the bumpy surface piece that goes under, in red: You can now notice that the silver lugs on the wheel line up with the two black holes on the cars frame. I fit them together on each side and screw them all: Stage complete
  2. Stage 55, brake assembly: This brake assembly is the same as the other. Brake disc cover attaches to wheel hub: Then cover and hub go into the brake disc Screw on the brake calliper: Fit to the interior wheel: Screw together from the front and cover with the hubcap: Stage complete
  3. Stage 54, exhaust: I start off by screwing the muffler bottom and top together. I only use one screw which is not fully screwed in. You should be able to pull the pieces apart slighlty: Next, the tailpipe and intermediate pipe go into the muffler on the opposite side to the screw. The loose screw will allow you to pull the muffler apart slightly to fit the pipes in: I squeeze the muffler to hold the pipes in for now. Once all four pipes are in the. muffler, I screw the two screws in tightly: The right and left exhaust tip get a small amount of glue applied, then I stick them to tailpipes: Stage complete:
  4. Stage 52/53, Brakes, rims and tires: As you may have found out, tires are very hard to get over the rims. There is a solution however, which is to soak the tires in boiling hot water for 5 minutes. (kettle water is hot enough). After 5 minutes, take the tire(s) out, but don't use your fingers because the water is still very hot. Now quickly stretch the tire over the rim. It still requires some effort, but a lot less than before. Now to make the brakes. Fit the brake disk cover to the wheel hub: Now add the Brake disk to the cover and hub: The the brake caliper goes on. This part is screwed into hold it all together: Once the brake assembly is complete, I rest it on the inside of the wheel: The brake assembly attaches using a screw that goes into the front of the wheel. Then the wheel hubcap goes over the screw: Stages complete
  5. Stage 51, interior decoration: The two rectangles fit together with 2 lugs and 2 holes: Then I drop the whole piece into the back of the cars interior and screw it in underneath: The two silver decorations fit in the holes and screw in from underneath: Stage complete
  6. Stage 50, Back seat: I take the smaller of the two types of seatbelt and insert it into the centre of the backseat. The Shelby logo should face up: The seatbelts attach to the bottom of the seat just like the other seatbelts. Now the longer of the seatbelts goes underneath and wraps around to the top of the seat (it doesn't go through any holes). This is how the seatbelts should look once they have all been attached. As i have mentioned before, you can add a bit of glue if they are loose: Next, I take the back seat section and drop it into the cars interior. Then it attaches via the screws underneath: Stage complete
  7. Stage 49, seatbelts and roll bar: The seatbelts might be wonky, so you can use a heavy book to rest on top and leave overnight: Whilst you flatten your seatbelts, you can start by placing this bar behind the dashboard like so, and screwing in on: I thread the seatbelt through the seatbelt retractor: The seatbelt now screws onto the roll bar. Pull the seatbelt so the metal part lays flat on the seatbelt retractor. You will know if it is correct because it shouldn't block the hole for the screw to go in. Once both seatbelts are attached, it should look like this. This is also what the seatbelts look like without using the book to flatten. The instructions show it with the book: Simply take the roll bar and slot in to the holes on each side of the interior behind the front seats. Then screw to keep it in: The seatbelts now go through the floor. Notice how i have twisted over the seatbelt on the left image. This is because it will make the lug and hole face each other on the under side. You only need to twist the outer seatbelt on each side. Also you can glue the seatbelts underneath to make them stay easier if they keep coming loose: Stage complete
  8. Stage 48, Interior: Firstly, I take the silver panel and screw it onto the black panel: Then this piece is attached to the car using three screws. I screw all screws in before squeezing the lug and hoop together at the back: Stage complete:
  9. Starting pack 7 with an interior panel: This stage comes with two decorative accessories which I screw to the panel with the screws provided: Silver on the left of the panel, black on the right: Now the panel goes onto the interior car. I put the latch and the lug together first as this was easiest for me: Next, I screw in only two screws which are circled in yellow. The third screw doesn't go in. You will find out why in the next step. I get the back bench, and put one side into a hole in the car interior. Now you can bend the side panel back to fit the other side of the bench in because of the screw that i missed on the previous step: Once the bench is in, you can screw in that last screw under the car: Stage complete

  11. Stage 39, floor mats and fire extinguisher: First of all, I press the driver and front passenger floor mats into the floor, making sure the bar shape on the mat is away from the pedals. The I do the same thing for the rear passenger floor mats (both left and right mats are the same, so it doesn’t matter which side they go in): Tip for if your mats are not going in easily: I use the Agora screwdriver and put it in the screw holes then rotate it around to slightly widen the hole: Once I get the mats all the way, I put the passenger chair on. It does matter which of the two chairs you use. If you lay the chair flat and then bend the backrest forward, you will notice that it is at a slight angle. The chair needs to angle inwards as to give the rear passenger more room to get into the car: Now I place the drivers chair on and screw it in with 2 more screws: If you want, you can attach the seatbelts to the plug. I leave mine undone because there is no-one sitting in the chair. If you have a toy figure, go ahead and use that 🙂 The next part I do is optional. I add a small drop of glue to the underside of the car to hold the seat belts in place: Onto the fire extinguisher. The two red sides have gaps at the top to allow the silver handle part to go in: I squeeze the sides together, but some excess paint on the lug had stopped them from fitting flush. I use a scalpel to scratch it off: So now that I have joined the sides together, I use a cleaning cloth to clean the face of the extinguisher in preparation for adding the sticker. I recommend you do the same as the sticker will peel off by itself if the surface isn’t clean: Now I place the sticker onto the fire extinguisher. I tried to get the sticker as accurately placed as I could, so yours should look something like this: I now push the fire extinguisher onto the car. It will hold itself there so no need for glue: And the stage is now complete
  12. Stage 46, constructing the back bench: Firstly, the rear seat back panel has four lugs which I line up and press together: Next, I take the piece I made in stage 45 and screw it to the panel with 3 MP07 screws. Again, I find that the Agora screwdriver works best out of all my screwdrivers for these small fiddly screws: Pack complete.
  13. Stage 44, trunk partition panel: This next panel goes on the back of the car. It first clips onto the wall from the previous stage, then I screw the three holes with MP01 screws: Stage complete Stage 45, rear seat folding panel: Quick stage – I attach the hinge to the seat panel with 3 MP07 screws. These screws are tiny, and I struggled to get them in without a magnetic screwdriver, so I recommend using the Agora screwdriver: Stage complete
  14. Stage 43, building up the interior walls: The ventilation grill fits on nicely to the panel. Then I screw in with 2 MP01 screws on the back: Now this panel is ready to go on top of the previously attached panel. The two red circles are MP01, and the yellow smaller circle is an MP05: Stage complete
  15. Stage 42, building up the inside walls: Firstly, I put the decorative accessory onto the panel and screw in: Next, I put the release lever in and screw it: Now the panel is ready to be attached with 3 MP01 screws: Stage complete
  16. Stage 40, Lengthening out the floor: This stage comes with one piece which I attach to my Super Snake interior with 4 MP01 screws: Stage complete Stage 41: Same again. I attach another piece of floor to the back: Stages complete

  18. Stage 38, final stage, floor and seatbelts: Each seatbelt anchor goes at either end of the floor. The red line and dot show where they go in. Make sure the flat side on the anchor is facing inwards: Now the rear floor connects to the front floor with 4 MP01 screws: The seatbelts now go from the top of the floor and through to the bottom: Pack complete! Love the inside of the super snake.
  19. Stage 37, Radio, Dials and glove compartment: The radio fits in the centre of the dashboard. Screwed in with 2 MP01 screws: Next, I put the two stickers onto the central dial support: Once the stickers are in, I place the dial glass over them, then the frame over the glass and hold it together with and MP05 screw in the back: Now the dial goes under the radio on the dashboard, and screw in with another MP05 screw: Next, I put the glove box bottom onto the dashboard and line it up with the three screw holes. Then I use 3 MP01 screws to h old it in: The glove box has two pins in th coroners which go in the holes on the dashboard. The glovebox should open and close: I take the interior floor, and attach the dashboard to it with 2 MP03 screws like so: Stage complete
  20. Stage 36, dashboard trim, dials and Shelby badge: I use a scalpel to peal off the stickers, stick them to the end of the scalpel and them lay them into the dashboard (the stickers on the sheet are in the order they should be placed on the dashboard): I do this with each sticker: Next, I take the dial cover and press it into the dashboard trim (no glue needed) Now I place the trim onto the dashboard: Then the dashboard strip goes over the trim, and It is all held together with 3 MP01 screws on the back: The last sticker goes onto the badge: \ Then I place the badge onto the dashboard and screw it in with 2 MP05 screws: Stage complete
  21. Stage 35, fuse cover: Quick stage - Place the fuse cover on to the dashboard and screw it in: Stage complete
  22. Stage 34, pedals and interior walls: I attach both walls to the floor. Each wall uses three screws, the first being an MP03: Then I use 2 MP01 screws for the other holes: Next, I put the switches in the switch holder. It doesn't matter which switch goes where as long as the button faces out from it: Now I hook the switch holder onto the floor and screw it in with an MP01 screw (the switches may be a little loose) Finally, I use two MP01 screws to attach the pedals. The pedals should be able to press the switches. If they don't, try loosening the pedal screws a little: Stage complete
  23. Stage 33, gear lever and interior floor: Stage 33 is very quick. Simply put the gear lever in, flip it over and screw in with a MP01 screw: Stage complete
  24. Stage 32, upper suspension arms: I line up the upper suspension arms with the suspension arm supports. Make sure they are in correctly (shown in the right image): Next, I use my pliers to push in a pin in each suspension arm: Then the suspension arms go onto the car with 4 MD06 screws (2 each): Stage complete
  25. Stage 31, stabiliser bar and lower suspension arms: Firstly, I turn the car upside down, then place the stabiliser bar into the sockets like so: Now I secure with a pin on each side: The pins might be difficult to get in. If they are, try putting them in from the other side. I use the side of my pliers to push them in all the way as they were wearing away the paint when used normally: Next, I flip the car over and screw the stabiliser bar in with 2 MP03 screws: Stage complete. The steering rod assembly goes on like this, but it won't stay in until we get the wheels so I leave it to one side.
