Right Tail Light

Step 99.1

Retrieve your Body assembly from the previous kit and place it upside down on a soft surface. Fit the posts of the Left Tail Light Lens into the matching holes at this right-side location on the Tail Panel:

Step 99.2

Fit the Right Tail Light LEDs circuit board over the exposed posts of the Right Tail Light Lens while passing the four LED bulbs through the matching holes of the Tail Panel.

Be sure the wires of the Right Tail Light LEDs are facing towards the side of the Body, as shown:

Steps 99.3-99.4

Cover the Right Tail Light LEDs with the Right LEDs Cover, orient it as shown, and secure the Cover to the Lens with two (2) PS05 screws.

These steps will capture the circuit board in place:

Step 99.5

Route the wires of the Left Tail Light LEDs along the matching groove on the inside of the left rear fender of the Body. Secure them into place by pressing one of the Wiring Tabs A (the largest ones marked ‘A’) onto these small posts:

Moving towards the front of the Body, secure the Left Tail Light LEDs wires into place here with a smaller Wiring Tab B (marked ‘B’) as shown:

Step 99.6

Then, route the Left Tail Light LEDs wiring and over the left door opening, as shown. Secure it into place by pressing the pins of two Wiring Tabs C into the matching holes at these locations:

Step 99.7

Switching over to the right side of the Body, route the wires of the Right Tail Light LEDs along the matching groove on the inside of the right rear fender. Secure them into place by pressing the other Wiring Tab A onto these small posts:

Then, secure the Right Tail Light LEDs farther forward using the second Wiring Tab B, as shown:

Step 99.8

Finally, secure the Right Tail Light LEDs along the bottom of the right door opening in the same way as before, again with two Wiring Tabs C:

Thoughts


I always try to keep the wiring inside my partwork models as clean and organized as possible. We just have to make sure that we leave enough slack in the cables so they can reach the socket they are ultimately supposed to plug into!
