Pack 11 - Stage 83. Fitting the headlights.

Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

Stage 83 gives us the front right wheel arch, but we fit the headlights to the front body.


Put the supplied parts away safely while we fit the headlights to the front body.


Place the headlight cross bar in the brackets inside the front body.


Take the two support plates.  They have tabs on one side.  These tabs will face inwards.


Fit the two support plates to the brackets with a couple of screws.


The headlights should sit nicely in the front body.


Make sure that they can pivot up to the working position.


Take the bonnet grill support and screw it to the inside of the front body.


Take the front bonnet hinges supplied in stage 81.


Be careful to get them the right way round.  This close-up shows how the left hinge goes together.  The right hinge is a mirror image.


I found that I needed to sand the paint and mould lines off the hinge to get a smooth fit.


Screw teh two hinges together with the long type G screws.  Make sure that they pivot freely.


This completes the stage.
