This set of parts will complete the dashboard allowing it to be fixed to the car, fit the rear side windows to the body, fit the rear engine tray and begin the assembly of the front luggage space.

Assembly of the dashboard parts is very straightforward but fitting the steering column correctly into place is made much easier by gently pushing up from underneath the floor on the locating hoop on the steering rack that the column lower pin goes into.
The dashboard can now be screwed into the car.
Here, you can test that some of the electrical functions work.

Fitting the rear engine tray is equally straightforward but if you have added any extra wiring or pipework, take care not to get it trapped under the tray.
Route and fix your additional wiring (if any) and attach the oil pipe.

The main body shell now has the rear side windows fitted.
Before doing this the body should be coloured black inside the window openings as they will show through as white once the windows are in place.
The real cars were trimmed inside just here and were not body colour.
Colouring the areas black can be done very easily by running a Sharpie around the frames.
Fit the windows as per the instructions.

The front luggage tray is assembled next, with the heater fan and hoses being painted in different shades of black and gunmetal for a bit of colour variety even though most of it will not be seen once the cover is fitted.
The rubber hoses can be made to look more authentic by sanding the plastic parts with 400 grit wet and dry.

The small tool holder is easy to fit but once in place it is almost impossible to open the recessed lid as there is no access to the edges.
This can be rectified by attaching a small tab to the lid which will project up into the boot space.
The tab here was made using a small piece of self-adhesive vinyl folded over on itself, and stuck inside the lid. A piece of sticky paper label could be used or even a piece of sticky tape.
It isn’t prototypical but it allows the tool box to be opened with ease.
