Front Floor Elements

Before we start, I just wanted to say that I am excited to see that these interior floor panels are already pre-carpeted!

Step 50.1

Press the tab of the Nitro Control Switch into the matching slot at this location of the Front Floor, as shown.

This is a press-fit and does not require any screws or glue:

Step 50.2

Press the two pins of the Gear Lever Mounting Plate into the matching holes at this location of the Front Floor.

This is also a press-fit connection and can be fitted either way – it doesn’t matter:

Step 50.3

Fit the post of the Gear Lever into the hole of the Gear Lever Mounting Plate, as shown.

Step 50.4

Secure the Gear Lever into place from below with one (1) PS09 screw:

Thoughts


The iconic Go-Baby-Go shift knob with the big red button – how Eleanor is that!? These details are what make this model special. And, this is the first partwork vehicle I have ever built that came with the interior floor already pre-carpeted. What a perfect way to reach the halfway point in our assembly of the Eleanor Mustang. Thank you Eaglemoss/Die-Cast Club!
