About Me


  1. Stage 19, left rear wheel housing liner: First step is placing the wheel housing liner onto the frame and screw it on with 3 MD06 screws: Stage complete Stage 20, left leaf spring: I put the front shackle onto the leaf spring on the side closest to the hole in the middle and pin it in with some pliers. Then I do the same thing for the rear shackle: The leaf spring now goes under the car and over the axle. Make sure the hole on the leaf spring is over the axle like the picture, then flip it over and screw it in with 2 MP01 screws: Next i place the spring plate over the four pins on the axle and screw in with 2 MP05 screws: Stage complete:
  2. In stage 3, I am putting the window onto the main part of the left-hand door assembly. Here are the parts: The window lines up with 3 holes on the door. 3 MD05 screws are used to hold them together: Put the door on a mat, careful not to scrape the paintwork. The hinge lays in the groove inside the door this way up: If the hinge is the wrong way way up (in the picture below), then then the door will not close properly, so it is important to get it like the previous image above. Looking at the triangular end of the hinge, then the hypotenuse side (longest) lies on the door, with the right angle of the triangle 'in the air'. THIS IS INCORRECT PLACING: The black hinge bracket will lay on top of the hinge to hold it in place, aligned with 2 lugs on the door. A MD06 screw will hold the hinge bracket on, and stage 3 is complete: Stage complete!
  3. Stage 62, wheel, steering and floor. (I have already built the wheel when i soaked them in stage 57) The steering wheel column goes though the under the dashboard: The steering colum connector is from stage 61. I fit it behind the dashboard and screw it into the steering column once it is lined up: Next, I rest the interior onto the base of the car, making sure that the steering column goes into the steering gear area: Then the steering column adjuster from stage 61 rests on top of the column pinion: There are four holes underneath which I use to attach the chassis to the floor assembly. Make sure everything is lined up properly or the screws will not go in: Stage complete
  4. Stage 61, steering wheel and column: In this image, I am hammering the pinion to the steering column with a spanner. I you have a hammer that would be better, but it is quite hard to join them without a hammering tool: Now the button goes into the upper column cover. The button sits in a square gap, and there is another gap in the square where the wire can pass though: I now place the steering column into the cover, and run the wire along it. Make sure the wire is not covering the screw holes: Next, the other half of the steering cover screws over the first half: The steering wheel can now go onto the column cover like so: And finally the steering wheel emblem can be pressed into place: Stage complete
  5. Stage 64, boot and spare wheel: Firstly, the back panel from stage 62 i used to connect the two panels from this stage. Make sure that the small cylinder protruding from the bottom of the panels is facing outward. The panels clip in, so no glue or screws: Now I take the trunk panel assembly and put it onto the back of the car. It is held in place with the two cylinder bits sticking out that i mentioned earlier: Now the scissor jack screws onto the inside of the wheel, then the spare wheel lock rests on where the hub would normally go. You can tell which wheel is the spare wheel because only one of them has holes at the centre where the others have nuts: Stage complete
  6. Stage 60, exhaust pipes: The first step is to unscrew all 11 screws which I have circled on this image. Then the plate comes off the car completely to allow the exhaust to go in: The exhaust assembly from stage 54 goes on. I gently wiggle the pipes through the car. I found it easiest to put one pipe through first, then gently bend the second one through as opposed to putting them through at the same time: Now I turn the car upside down, whilst holding the exhaust to the car with one hand. There are six screw holes (circled in red) which hold the exhaust in place: The plate that I took off at the start can now go back on: The two resonator half pipes attach to the end of the exhaust system with 2 screw each: Next, the exhaust goes into two slots on the first exhaust piece that i wiggled in: Now the exhaust is screwed in on the other side with four screws: Stage complete
  7. Stage 59, back right wheel. I use hot water from a kettle to soften and expand the tire so that i can get it on the rim easily: Now the brake goes into the wheel: And now the wheel+brake go onto the back of the car and attach with one screw: Finally, I fit the cap onto the wheel: Stage complete
  8. Stage 58, brake and shock absorber: Just like the left side, I use a pin to attach these shock absorber parts together: I then unscrew the two screws holding down the square metal part so that the shock absorber can go in: Now, I drop the shock absorber under the axel and screw in from the other side: The shock absorber piston attaches to the square part that I took off previously. Then it fits into the rest of the shock absorber from the last step: Stage complete
  9. Stage 57, left rear wheel. Video tutorial for the tires: In this stage, I use the hot water method to get on the tire from this stage. I also open a later stage and soak the tire in it at the same time: After 5 minutes, the tires are ready. I use some tweezers to take them out as the water is still hot. Then I stretch them around the wheels: Now the brake goes into the wheel rim. It rests loosely until I attach the wheel and brake onto the car: Stage complete
  10. Stage 56, shock absorber and brake: The shock absorber support and cylinder join together using a pin: To fit the shock absorber, I take off this square piece first: Now I drop the shock absorber into the car. It fits into a rectangular dent and is screwed in from the other side: Next, the shock absorber pistol screws onto the metal part that I just unscrewed from the car: The shock absorber pistol fits into the rest of the shock absorber that i just screwed on. Then the metal part screws back on top of the wheel axle: Stage complete
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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:
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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:
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
