W196R Stage 2. Radiator grille and the dash.

Recommended Posts

Stage 2 gives us the radiator grille and the dashboard.  I left the parts in the plastic tray as it lays them out very neatly!


Fix the grille to the frame withe 2 tiny black screws.


Fix teh two hinges to the frame with a couple of larger black screws.


Fix the bracket 2F inside the nose cone.  This holds the radiator grille return spring.


Fix the grille assembly to the nose cone with the two hinge supports.


Finally, the spring is fitted.  This is easily done with some fine tweezers, but unfortunately I forgot to take the photo!

Now we move on to the dashboard.  This is a very simple affair when compared to more modern cars.  Just a rev counter, water temp and oil pressure gauges.  

Start by pushing the fuel low indicator and the cold start injector into their holes in the dash.


Now fit the rev counter.  This just pushes in, and needs a firm press.  Make sure you get it with the legend horizontal.

No need to fit the other two smaller gauges as they are replaced later in the build.


This complete the stage.
