ISSUE 102

 Return to the BUILD


“Fit a cable and wires to the junction box on the front right side of your DeLorean.”

This will be a near duplicate of Issue 100, just on the other side of the car. I may take a few shortcuts, but you can reference the other issue.

Build


Cable and Wires, Front Right Side

Step 1

Push the pin on the end of the Cable into this top hole of the Plug, as shown:

Step 2

Fit the Plug into this location on the right-side Junction Box, aligning the locating pin as shown:

At the same time, fit the three pins on the Cable into these matching holes in the body. These pins do not hold the Cable in place, but the next steps should secure it better:

Step 3

Secure the Plug to the Junction Box with one (1) IP screw.

I chose to ‘paint’ this screw head with my hand Metallic Silver Sharpie, just to blend in a bit better:

Step 4

Push the pin of the connector on the end of the Multicoloured Wires into this rear hole of the right-side Junction Box:

Steps 5-8

Pass the Wire underneath both the Cable and the Multicoloured Wires and twist it around to secure them together. Pliers may make this easier. Cut off any excess wire with wire cutters. Repeat this process five more times along the entire length.

I did not use this Wire on my build. See my Mod Zone below:

Eaglemoss gave us this little black wire to wrap the wires/cable along the sides of the car. This is not accurate in color or frequency of the cable ties used on The ‘A’ Car. Just like the left side of the car in Issue 100, I used these Mini Cable Ties from Mike Lane:

Thoughts


Does this process feel familiar?! We are almost done with the sides of the car and it is looking excellent! The parts in this issue are plastic.

Running Total of screws used so far: 943
