Pack 3 contains Stages 26-36

Stage 26 – The dashboard and instruments


Contains parts –

Dashboard
Gauges x 5
Speedometer and rev counter
Gauge panel
Speedometer and rev counter panel
Switches A × 5
Ignition switch
Indicators × 4
Parking brake
Switches B × 4


The instruments supplied with this stage are a set of five gauges (fuel, oil pressure, oil temperature, water temperature, ammeter) and the speedometer and rev counter.

Wrap some double-sided tape around the ends of the tweezers.
Using cutters, remove switches A, the ignition switch, the indicators, the parking brake and switches B from the sprue. Position the flat side of the cutters against the bottom of the part you want to remove, while holding the part to make sure it doesn’t get lost. A good alternative to holding the parts is to apply a strip of tape to hold them while cutting. Make a note of which parts are which when you remove them.
Locate the three sets of holes in the dashboard, which will take the parts that you’ve just removed from the sprue.
Insert the three indicators into the three holes. Try not to scratch the dashboard when fitting any of the parts.
Locate the D-shaped hole on the right-hand side of the dashboard and align the flat edge of the pin of one switch B with the flat edge of the hole in the dashboard, and insert the pin into the hole.
Fit the other three switch B parts into the correct holes in the dashboard.
Fit the parking brake – the pin and hole are both D-shaped, so the brake can be placed in only one position.
Insert the ignition switch into the hole at the end of the fascia from Stage 25 then adjust it’s position so that the slot in it is vertical. You might find it helpful to use a magnifying stand.
Fit the four switch A parts into the four holes alongside the ignition switch in the fascia.
Take the speedometer and rev counter panel and place it onto the speedometer and rev counter then align the speedometer and rev counter with the holes in the dashboard, working from the rear, then push into place - the rims of the instruments should protrude slightly from the front of the dash.
Fit the gauge panel onto the gauges, align the gauges with the corresponding holes in the dashboard then push into place.

Align the dashboard with the matching area of the fascia from Stage 25, then push the dashboard into place on the fascia.

Stage complete.
