Stage 49, Assembling the passenger seat


The first step is to fit the backrest adjuster knob to the backrest bracket. Screw this down with a PS36 screw. Next, fit the backrest over the backrest, making sure it is fully "hooked" all the way around.


Now, using the backrest bracket L1, fix it into place with 3 PS21 screws, then attach the backrest to the seat base with 2 PS37 screws from the back, and 1 PS01 screw from the side. Next, fit the remaining bracket L@ to the other side of the seat, using a PS01 screw.


Stage complete.

Stage 50, installing the ejector mechanism



Start by assembling the ejector guide rails. you'll need the guide rails, the spring, and 4 DS20 screws.


Next, fit the return spring to the ejector lever.


Fit the lever assembly to the underside of the cockpit floor.



I neglected to take pics of the following steps..... (too excited to see the ejector mechanism work, I guess!)

Install the keeper bracket over the lever, then fir the ejector guide rail assembly through the hole in the cockpit floor, and secure with 4 PS05 screws. Then, place the seat into position, and compress the spring with the seat until the hook on the lever catches the seat. Now, test the seat, and watch it go flying!

Stage 57, fitting the steering wheel and dashboard LEDs


Start by inserting the steering column into the steering wheel. Then, LIGHTLY tap the column into the wheel until it is fully seated. The column will fit only 1 wayso aligning the steering wheel later will not be a problem. 


Next, the left steering column cover is put into position, followed by the right hand cover. These fit only in 1 position, with the ring cast onto the column fitting into a recess in the cover. Use 4 PS12 screws to secure the halves of the cover together.


The next item to be placed into position is the Aston Martin badge that goes in the center of the steering wheel. the badge is aligned so that it is perpendicular to the centerline of the center spoke on the wheel. (The flat on the other end of the steering column aligns with the center spoke)


The steering wheel assembly is than inserted into the dash. As the socket in the dash is shaped to match the end of the steering column cover, it will fit in only 1 way.


The dash is secured to the floor tub with 2 PS05 screws. Another PS05 screw is driven into the GPS cover.


The next item to manage is the dash LED bulbs. These bulbs are on 1 cable.    Push home 2 of the bulbs into  the dash, and one into the GPS housing, then connect the 2 cables marked 11 after the bulbs have been seated.


Lastly, connect cables 12, 13 and 14 to the motherboard, and then fit the wire bracket as shown in step 17.



Stage and pack finished!
