Thanks John, I'm really pleased with the way this is coming on.  I looked at the seatbelt hooks and thought they were going to be trouble, but mine went in with no problem at all.  Glad Agora CS got you sorted quickly!  I'm looking forward to the next pack now!

Stage 55 is the lower trunk board and fuel filler pipe.  I assume this translates to boot floor! LOL!! Two parts, one screw, easy!! Stage 56 is the circuit board and cables. Plug the

I'm a bit late uploading these packs.  Life got in the way!  Anyway, on to Pack 8.

Stage 57 The fuel tank

51286533273_3f7298c05b_b.jpg

 

 

Take the trunk board assembly with wires, and arrange them like this.

51287378195_a051961dd8_b.jpg

 

 

Screw on the fuel tank, and you should have something like this.

51285615817_42b2599266_b.jpg

 

Stage 58.  The rear trunk.

51286533218_fc834828ef_b.jpg

 

Fit the two parts together.

51285615637_fcc463e460_b.jpg

 

 

 

Add the fuel tank, and you end up with something like this.

51285615612_a45bd9f07c_b.jpg

Stage 59 Fuel pumps, etc.

51286362741_ee106759e7_b.jpg

 

 

The fuel pumps are pushed into the trunk bulkhead.

51287081944_56110c2cfb_b.jpg

 

 

The first pipes go on next.  I ended up using a drop of superglue applied from underneath to secure the front ends of the pipes, where the go into the trunk floor.

51287081934_2015d52674_b.jpg

 

 

Then the other two pipes are fitted.  If you look carefully you can see where one of the pipes has pulled out fo the floor, hence the need for superglue.

51286362611_a07a067146_b.jpg

 

 

Finally the trunk lid support is fitted.

Stage 60 Rear fender part

51286362931_4fc8ab79f0_b.jpg

 

 

Feed the cables through the rear fender, paint attention to the cable numbers.

51287378310_49dcb6aebb_b.jpg

 

 

Screw the tank and truck assembly to the rear fender

51286362926_293b5678c5_b.jpg

 

 

Then add the cable clip.

Stage 61 The Firewall.

Moving to the front of the car, we start with the firewall.  Nothing to do but admire this part.  

51287082259_8642410df0_b.jpg

 

 

Stage 62 The speaker

51287082239_360dfcf824_b.jpg

 

 

Nothing too challenging with fitting the speaker!

51286362866_e114b87572_b.jpg

 

 

Stage 63 Gubbins for the firewall.

51285615827_644e38aa80_b.jpg

 

 

Just follow the instructions to add the details.  I found some of the cables were a little loose, but were easily secured with superglue.  Just use a tiny drop.

51287082194_3e47dafb27_b.jpg

 

 

51286362771_5be976808a_b.jpg

 

 

Stage 64 continues with the firewall details.

51286362736_8b776b4062_b.jpg

 

 

Again, just follow the instructions, adding tiny drops of superglue where it's needed to hold cables.

51286533138_fb5a4e3be8_b.jpg

This completes this pack, but here's the gratuitous overall shot of the model with the new parts put in place

On the Pack 9.

Stage 65 the drivers seatbelt brackets and roll cage.

51286360541_9008de81b3_b.jpg

 

 

Find the roll bar from pack 1 and attach the seatbelt bracket and eye bolts.

51285613272_fba6bd83d6_b.jpg

 

 

Clip in the seat belts, noting the orientation of the buckles.

51286530788_2fb682f7e0_b.jpg

 

 

Add the roll bar section.

51286530773_b41e223c96_b.jpg

Stage 66 more firewall details.

51285613177_4bc15b787b_b.jpg

 

 

Add the pipes to the oil vapour canister.

51287079609_9fd633f2d1_b.jpg

 

 

Then fit it to the firewall.

51285613082_725c311e6f_b.jpg

 

 

Add the air intake pipe.

Stage 67 the steering shaft.

51287079619_31fe8f65da_b.jpg

 

 

First, take the advice from the expert and rethread the screw hole for the cam caver in this bracket.  I hadn't done it in this photo, but it's really good advice!
Then screw the bracket to the chassis.

51287079614_2cfedc9a89_b.jpg

 

 

Fiddle the shaft into position.  It's not too difficult with tweezers.

51286530663_5acb8babfb_b.jpg

 

 

Then fit the cover (sorry, I forgot to take that photo.)

Stage 68 The setting rack and column.

51285613117_cc4211ce95_b.jpg

 

 

Tap the steering wheel onto the steering column.  I used a small block of wood so I could tappy tap tap right on the centre of the steering wheel without damaging it.
Then it just drops into the firewall.

51286530643_9c1c3575b0_b.jpg

 

 

Then add the steering rack with the springs.

51285613397_1243577822_b.jpg

Stage 69 The trunk lid.

51286530968_17b487b2a1_b.jpg

 

 

These parts are easily fitted.

51286530958_632e707c40_b.jpg

 

 

Stage 70 The license plate and hinges.

51286530963_ee20704977_b.jpg

 

 

Hinges fit thus.

51287079809_530470162e_b.jpg

 

 

And the license plate goes here.

51286530933_d9ea7f7025_b.jpg

Stage 71 The Door, well, one of them anyway.

51287079799_a02227a14a_b.jpg

 

 

Screw the door card in place.

51286360521_2d063ff95c_b.jpg

 

 

Then push the rivets in the top.  I used the end of a paint brush handle to avoid damaging anything.  Some of them needed a fairly good shove!

51285613252_16551a76ac_b.jpg

 

 

Stage 72 the door hinge and catch.

Firstly, that spring is really tiny!  Don't feed it to the carpet monster!  The carpet monster loves tiny springs!  His favourite food!!!!

51285613207_92b3ca3b21_b.jpg

 

 

Push the print on to the handle.

51285613217_fea1e8b134_b.jpg

 

 

Then fit the handle and hinge to the door.  Don't over tighten the OP15 screw.

51286360371_e5a2973286_b.jpg

 

 

Stage 73 The right door.

This is simply a repeat of stage 71.

51286360331_ca25394127_b.jpg

 

 

That completes this stage.  No gratuitous overall shot this time as there's no easy way of putting this packs parts in place until we get the bodywork.

On with pack 10.

Start with stage 74 which is the passenger door hinge and catch

51317241409_7e995ea13e_b.jpg

Assembly is exactly the same as the driver's door back in stage 72.  Here's the finished assembly.

51316512801_6d3cdf35f8_b.jpg


Stage 75 gives us the windscreen frame.

51315779637_e09a49dd9a_b.jpg

Nothing to do with this just yet.

Stage 76 gives us the left sun shade and wind deflector.

51317241304_0861509b52_b.jpg

You have to prise open the brackets, fit them on the frame, and then squeeze them shut.  It works well as the metal is soft and doesn't spring.

51317522345_39be46a330_b.jpg

Stage 77 is the right shade and deflector.

51317522355_ed2a365036_b.jpg

Rinse and repeat!

51317241229_57e61fdde1_b.jpg

Stage 78 is the wind screen

51317241234_6d119bafc3_b.jpg

This just clips in.

51316725308_67c8f9a75e_b.jpg

Stage 79 gives us the radiator and oil cooler

51316512706_ae14ae3e7e_b.jpg

The front photo-etch grill screws in place.  The screws are tiny!  And fiddly!!

51316512716_8a4d7c821f_b.jpg

The rear of the oil cooler is just dropped in place.  Then the tabs on the front are bent over, the front dropped in place, and the tabs bent the secure it all.

51316725293_eab334335f_b.jpg

Stage 80 continues with the radiator.

51315779752_2b8045ef14_b.jpg

The back is screwed in place.

51316725488_0437bfb494_b.jpg

Then the etched grill is screwed in place.  More fiddly screws!!

51317241434_9b3dc15196_b.jpg

Stage 81 is the radiator fans and oil cooler mounting bracket.

51317522565_c36676e705_b.jpg

The oil cooler clips in place, and that's it for now.

51317241389_4aa5f2f69c_b.jpg

Stage 82 is the radiator mounting bracket.

51317522530_5733309633_b.jpg

The fans screw into place.

51315779667_8dc72efe55_b.jpg

Then the oil cooler assembly clips into place.

51317522475_198fcebe96_b.jpg

And that's it for this pack.  No gratuitous shot of the overall model as we need the body to fit these parts.  Hopefully that will come in the next stage.
