The Chassis and Wiring

The Chassis Plate will not be used in this issue, so put it aside until the next issue:

Step 1

Lay Wire 6 (Black/White), Wire 10 (Blue/Green), Wire 11 (Green/Red) and Wire 23 (Red/Blue) between the Rear Left Wheel Arch and the engine, fitting them down between these posts.

I will mention it again: Eaglemoss misprinted the parts list for this issue – the part shown as Wire 9 is actually Wire 6. As in the previous issue, the ends with the black plugs go towards the center of the car. Also, like before, I chose to mark the wires with the 2 inch lengths from Step 2 and Step 5 first as it helps with wire placement:

Step 2

Make sure that you leave approximately 2 inches (5 cm) of each wire extending past these posts:

I did this with the previous step.

Step 3

Secure these four sets of wires into place using three of the Tabs. These Tabs have a pin and a hole. The pin fits in the post with the larger hole. Secure each Tab with one (1) KM screw.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 4

Position Wire 22 (Red/Blue) between the Rear Right Wheel Arch and the engine, fitting it down between these posts.

Once again, the end with the black plug go towards the center of the car:

Step 5

Make sure that you leave approximately 2 inches (5 cm) of wire extending past these posts:

I did this with Step 1.

Step 6

Like before, secure these wires into place using three of the Tabs and three (3) KM screws:

Thoughts


We do not see a misprint very often in this build, and I can see how a 9 and a 6 could be flipped, but we worked through it. There are a few wires we installed in this issue that are going to be replaced when I install The EL Light Mod kit from Model Modz, but I will tackle them when I receive the kit. The Chassis Plate (floorboard) in this issue is plastic.

Running Total of screws used so far: 345
