Stage 21 – Contains the Monocoque inner rear plate, Front shock absorber cap, Front shock spring, Front shock absorber, Front shock absorber end, Stabiliser link and screws

Tools Required:
HIPs adhesive
Instant adhesive (CA, Super Glue)
A Phillips screwdriver
A sharp Knife
Cutting mat
Masking tape

TIP: Test fit all parts before gluing together

Assembling the Monocoque inner rear plate sides
Apply plastic adhesive to the six positions shown on the rear half of the Monocoque inner plate. Fit the front half onto the rear half and hold together for 2-3 minutes. Tighten a screw J (1.4 x 6P-M BK) into the 10 circled holes in the Monocoque inner rear plate.

Assembling the front left shock absorber, spring and cap
Place the front shock spring over the shaft of the front left shock absorber, as shown in the picture below. Insert the end of the front left shock absorber shaft into the recess in the shock absorber cap and tighten one screw L (1.4 x 8P-M SiL) into the hole in the cap as shown in the picture below.

Fitting the shock absorber end to the shock absorber
Apply HIPs adhesive to the recess at the end of the left front shock absorber. Place the shock absorber end into position, as shown in the picture below. (not the orientation) and hold together for a few minutes. Leave for around an hour to allow the glue to cure completely. The front left shock absorber is now complete.

Fitting the radiator to the radiator housing
Test-fit the radiator assembly into the larger hole in the radiator housing as shown in the picture below. Apply plastic adhesive to the three areas from which the paint was removed in a previous stage and combine the parts. Hold for a few minutes and allow to dry. You can add some masking tape to assist in keeping the parts together until dry.

Fitting the intercooler to the radiator housing
Test-fit the intercooler assembly into the square hole in the radiator housing as shown in the picture below. Apply a few dabs of CA glue to the top and bottom of the back of the intercooler, where the paint was removed in an earlier stage and combine the parts as shown in the picture below. Hold together for a few minutes until dry.

Phillips screwdriver (size 00)
Sharp Knife
Cutting mat
Masking tape
Tweezers

Parts to have ready:
Front left shock absorber (Stage 21)
Front right shock absorber (Stage 22)
Stabiliser links (Stages 21 and 22)
Screws J (1.4 × 6P-M BK) (Stages 21 and 22) × 2
Monocoque assembly (Stage 22)

Assembling the shock absorber plates, shock absorbers and stabiliser links
Prepare the stabiliser links, the two J screws and the left and right front shock absorbers, all from Stages 21 and 22. Loosen the screws holding the caps in place on the shock absorbers, until they can rotate.
Place the left and right front shock absorber plates down in front of you. Identify their fronts, tops and bottoms, as shown below. Prepare two 1cm lengths of masking tape.
Insert a J screw into the hole on the left front shock absorber plate from the inside as shown in the picture below. Place the larger hole of one of the stabiliser links over the screw, and align the smaller hole with hole at the top and apply some masking tape to hold it in position.

Insert the silver projection of the left shock absorber into the hole in the left shock absorber plate as shown below. Now Insert the smaller black projection into the hole and fit the blue-circled hole over the J screw. Make sure that the hole of the shock absorber is aligned with the end of the stabiliser link, as shown in the picture below.
Now turn the plate over and check that the two projections are properly inserted into the holes. Tighten the J screw into the hole to secure the stabiliser link and shock absorber to the plate. Then remove the masking tape.

Repeat the same process for the right side shock absorber plate.

Gluing the steering guide plate to the shock absorber plate
Place the 3cm length of masking tape onto the steering guide plate, as shown in the picture below below.
Peel back the masking tape a little, and apply HIPs adhesive to the outside edge of the guide plate. Combine the parts as shown below and allow to dry before continuing with the next step.

Insert the stabiliser into the holes as shown below and then combine the right side shock absorber assembly as shown below.

Fitting the Monocoque front endplate to the Monocoque

Remove the paint from the area on the Monocoque front endplate that will be fitted to the Monocoque but don’t remove the paint from the two indicated projections.
Test fit the end plate so you can see where the adhesive will make contact with the Monocoque inside walls as shown.
Apply a small amount of adhesive to the areas making contact and fit into position. Secure the front endplate to the Monocoque with the two strips of masking tape and set aside to dry.

Test-fitting the cockpit

Carefully insert the cockpit into the monocoque and check the join between the monocoque and the cockpit. If there is a gap between them, you will need to make adjustments using a file to remove a small amount of the plastic at the top of the cockpit as shown below.

Fitting the trackrod brackets to the steering slider
Retrieve the steering slider from Stage 25. Identify the top of the slider by locating the circular section.
Identify from the instructions the trackrod mounting bracket and place onto the end of the slider. Adjust the bracket so that the projecting thread is facing down as shown in the picture below.
Fit the other trackrod mounting bracket to the other side in the same way noting that the projecting thread is facing down. Apply a small amount of instant adhesive to the ends using a toothpick and allow to dry.

Retrieve the steering glider gear from stage 25 and glue into position on to the steering slider noting the position as shown in the picture below.
Retrieve the steering column, steering pinion gear, monocoque front plate and steering gear guide received with Stage 25. Insert the steering column into the hole in the steering pinion gear and glue into position as shown in the picture below. Place the notch in the steering gear guide over the projecting part of the monocoque front plate and glue into position as shown in the picture below.

Temporarily assembling the steering

Insert the steering column into the hole in the shock stabiliser unit, from the front of the monocoque, until the part reaches the hole. The end of the column should rest in the hole in the monocoque.
Lift the steering column a little with your fingers, to make a gap for the gear. Place the steering slider gear above the gear at the end of the column, as shown in the picture below.
Now place the monocoque front plate at the front of the monocoque. Insert the notch in the steering gear guide into the gap between the pinion gear and the steering slider.
Align the edges of the monocoque parts at the join and apply some masking tape to temporarily secure into position.
