As with any partwork model build that includes lighting, there is going to be wiring and this 1:8 scale Lamborghini Miura is no different. It actually contains a lot of wiring that has to be routed, connected, and tested.
I have collected a few helpful tips to share along the way:
- Follow the colors – Wires have been known to have incorrect labels/markings, so pay attention to what goes where.
- Polarity matters – LEDs are diodes and will only work with the correct flow of electricity. Be sure to check connection orientation.
- Don’t pinch – Wires can easily be pinched between two pieces and cause a short, especially metal. Take care during assembly.
- Seat the plugs – Make sure all connectors are fully seated in their sockets.
NOTE: The Circuit Board (PCB) itself is supplied in Stage 76.
Finally, I created this table to help managing the wiring as we complete this particular build:
|PCB SOCKET #||FUNCTION||PLUG COLOR||PLUG DOT COLOR||SUPPLIED IN STAGE|

|7||Instrument Panel LED||White||-||04|
|9||Left Headlight LED||White||Orange||79|
|10||Right Headlight LED||White||Orange||79|
|11||Left Tail Light LED||White||Black||89|
|12||Right Tail Light LED||White||Black||90|
|13||Brake Pedal Switch||Black||Green||44|
|14||Left Door Switch||White||-||05|
|15||Right Door Switch||White||Blue||52|
