Thanks all for stopping by and your comments.

Steve, I would contact customer services to get the gear knob replaced, they are really good when it comes to replacing faulty parts.

Just been looking at this again and i have to comment on just how well they pack all of the parts.

The d-51 is the same with all parts nicely packed so they do not rub together and damage.

Look forward to seeing your next update.
Happy Modelling

Issue 45

We start by taking the front and turning it upside down to line up the right kick panel. This is secured to the floor using three screws, as always care needs to be taken so as not to over tighten the screws Wink Take the left kick panel and attach in the same way.

Now we need to put the switches into the switch housing ensuring you have placed the correct one in the correct hole as shown in the instructions. The switch housing is then secured to the underside of the floor, the switches will be under the holes in the floor where the pedals are attached. Attach the pedals, you will notice there are two posts that go into the holes, these will operate the switches. Once the pedals are secured if you press down on them you will hear the switch click.

Issue 46

This issue starts with taking the supplied fuse cover and attaching it to the supplied dash, its then secured with a screw. The dash is then fixed to the floor to finish this issue.

Issue 47

Some nice shiney parts are supplied for the instruments and dashboard trim. Start by taking the sticker sheet and familiarising yourself with where each one goes, then start applying to the relevant dial space on the dash. Now fit the instrument glass to the dashboard frame and then fit the frame to the dashboard. Take the dashboard trim and place the the sticker in the centre and then attach the trim to the dashboard frame securing it with screws, this really brings the dash to life and looks stunning Drool Love The issue is finished off by attaching the Shelby logo with screws.

Issue 48

We continue working on the dash in this issue by adding the more gauges, the radio and glove box. The radio is added first which is just secured in place with screws. Then the gauges need to have the stickers applied, making sure you get them the right way round Wink before then adding the glass and the gauge pod. The gauge assembly is then attached to the dash with a couple of screws.
Finally the glove box is added, starting with the back which is screwed in place from behind the dash assembly, then the glove box lid is inserted to the front, there are pins that need to go into the holes which will allow it to open and close. The dashboard can then be screwed to the floor.

The 'cockpit' is really starting to look quite nice now Love

Thanks all for stopping by and commenting BigGrin Cool

Steve, I did paint the air filter and wording on the engine but wasn't originally going to do much more than that, having said that I am now thinking of doing a couple of more parts like the calipers and engine grill Cool

I was the same Dave, just keeping it original is getting harder and harder. Some really nice mods on other builds has given me plenty of ideas for the future.

Issue 49

We start this issue by attaching the seat belt anchorages to the rear floor section, one on each side. The anchorage just pushes in, its quite stiff so shouldn't come out easily.

The rear floor is then attached to the front floor. Then the seat belts are attached to the floor, just pass them through the hole and pop over the pins. They should stay in place on their own but I also used a drop of superglue for a bit of extra security.

Issue 50

Start off by installing the front and rear floor mats into the recess, you'll need to give them a good firm press to get the pins all the way into the floor, they should fit pretty much flush and will very secure when installed.

Next the passenger and drivers seat are installed, secured in place with 2 screws in each seat. Then attach the seat belts to the anchorages to complete this issue.
