Issue 56

Contents: Outer spokes (Type A) x 12, Outer spokes (Type B) x 12, Wheel rim (inner) Spacer ring, screws

Take all the parts supplied this time together with the wheel assembly you completed in Issue 55. Cut a strip of double sided tape measuring about 1.5-2mm wide and 160mm long. Lay this in the groove that retains the ends of the spokes. Work the strip of double sided tape right down into the groove all around the rim then peel off the backing strip to reveal the adhesive layer.

Start by taking one of the spokes from the packet labelled ‘A’. Fit it through one of the lower row of holes in the wheel centre and thread the cranked end down through the ‘V’ formed by the closest pair of inner spokes. Turn the wheel over and lay the end of the spoke into the angled groove in the rim (it will only reach one). Press the cranked end of the spoke down into the double-sided tape to hold it in position.

Now take a spoke from packet ‘B’. Fit it through the upper row of holes in the wheel centre, using the hole above and to the left of the one fitted previously. Take the cranked end across the spoke you just fitted and down through the ‘V’ of the next pair of inner spokes. Turn the wheel over and lay the end of the spoke into the next angled groove in the rim, with its cranked end pointing towards the end of the first spoke you fitted. Press it into the double-sided tape to hold it in position.

Take another spoke from packet ‘A’. Fit it through the next one of the lower row of holes in the wheel centre and then down between the next pair of inner spokes. Turn the wheel over and lay the end of the spoke into the next notch in the rim, sticking the tip down as you’ve done previously. Take another spoke from packet ‘B’. Fit it through the hole above and to the left of the one fitted previously, across the spoke you just fitted and down through the ‘V’ of the next two inner spokes, secure the end to the rim.

Continue working round the wheel centre, alternating ‘A’ and ‘B’ spokes, crossing them over and feeding the tips through successive pairs of inner spokes. Repeat the process until you have fitted all 24 spokes into the alternate holes all the way round the rim. All the ends of the spokes should be lying in the groove around the rim.

Take the spacer ring and align the hole with the pin projecting from the wheel rim. Fit the spacer ring over the ends of the spokes then align the pin with the hole in the inner wheel rim. Press the inner wheel rim into place which will align the four screw holes. Drive a screw into each of the holes to complete the wheel.

This issue is now complete. Store the assembly and any unused parts in an issue labelled bag.

Issue 57

Contents: Tyre, Washer, Fixing screw

Take the tyre supplied with this issue, together with the finished wheel. Immerse the tyre completely in boiling water for a couple of minutes to soften the rubber. Carefully remove the tyre and dry it thoroughly. Before the rubber cools, slip the flange projecting from the rim between the sidewalls of the tyre. Quickly work round the tyre, stretching the sidewalls over the flange. This will take some force. Check that the tyre is evenly seated all the way round the rims on both sides.
Take the rear floor assembly you completed in Stage 49, together with the completed wheel, plus the washer and one of the screws provided.Fit the wheel over the right rear hub, placing the washer over the centre hole before driving a screw into place.

This issue is now complete. Store the assembly and any unused parts in an issue labelled bag.

Issue 58

Contents:Cockpit floor, Microswitch

Taking the cockpit floor and the microswitch provided, pass the white plug on the end of the switch cable through the rectangular hole near the side of the cockpit floor. Noting the correct wire position on the switch, press the switch into the rectangular hole ensuring it fits flush with the two tabs projecting on the underside.Using a pair of long-nosed pliers, bend one of the tabs over the end of the hole to lock the switch in place. Repeat this for the other tab.

This issue is now complete. Store the assembly and any unused parts in an issue labelled bag.

Issue 59

Contents:Transmission tunnel, Speaker mount (left), Speaker grilles (x 2), Speaker bezels (x 2), Speaker mount (right, Radio controls, Radio, Screw.

Align the left-hand speaker mount with the side of the transmission tunnel. Ensuring the three pins on the speaker mount are lined up with the holes in the side of the tunnel, press the mount into place. Lay one of the speaker grilles into the recess in the speaker mount followed by one of the speaker bezels, pressing the bezel firmly into the recess. When the bezel is fully inserted it will lock the grille into place. Repeat this process with the right hand mount,grille and bezel on the opposite side of the transmission tunnel.

Line up the radio controls with the back of the radio and push the controls into place, fitting the knobs and display into the corresponding holes. Drive a screw into the lug on the back of the radio. Line the radio assembly up with the front of the transmission tunnel and slide the lug into the U-shaped slot.

This issue is now complete. Store the assembly and any unused parts in an issue labelled bag.

Issue 60

Contents:Gear lever, Gear lever shroud,Centre console fascia, Foot pedals, Handbrake lever, Screws.

Fit the gear lever onto its shroud as shown so the lug will protrude through the keyhole in the shroud. Fit the lug and the two locating pins into the matching holes in the centre console fascia ensuring the parts fit flush.Turn the assembly over, and drive a screw into the hole to hold the parts together.Take the transmission tunnel from Stage 59, making sure the three arrowed holes in the tunnel match the corresponding lugs on the back of the centre console fascia, press the console fascia into the tunnel, ensuring that it fits flush. Secure it with three screws.Taking the cockpit floor from Stage 58 align the transmission tunnel with the centre of the floor and press into place, ensuring that it fits flush. Secure the tunnel with two screws.Take the foot pedals, noting the pin protruding from the brake pedal, in the centre.Fit the pedals, so that the pin goes in the hole in the cockpit floor and the ‘M’-shaped top of the pedals fits over the two matching lugs.Secure the pedals with a screw.Taking the handbrake lever,press the lever into the slot, so that the lug and the pin fit into the centre console fascia.Turn the assembly over, and secure it with a screw.
