Return to the BUILD
“For this stage you will assemble the rear panel of the transmission tunnel by fitting the air vents into it. The passenger mat and footrest will be used in a later stage and can be stored away for now.”
Materials: The Tunnel Rear Panel is rubberized plastic, the Air Vents and Passenger Footrest are plastic, and the Passenger Mat is rubber.
Preparing the Transmission Tunnel Rear Panel
Press the D-shaped posts of the two Air Vents into the matching shaped holes of the Transmission Tunnel Rear Panel, as shown.
These Air Vents will snap into place. I found it easier to align the D-shaped posts to the holes by looking at the inside of the Rear Panel:
Optional – Painting Details
To add additional detail to the Anti-Roll Bar we installed in Stage 36, we can use chrome paint to highlight the ‘mounting bolts’, as shown.
I hand-brushed these ‘mounting bolts’ with Vallejo Model Air 71.064 Chrome Metallic acrylic paint, but any silver paint would work here:
Since I had the paint out anyway, I also painted the four ‘bolt heads’ on both of my Rear Upper Wishbones:
This was a short stage, but we have begun the process of building our Lamborghini Miura interior. It is barely noticeable, but the Passenger Footrest has a rubberized and textured surface attached to it – very cool! Keep the unused Passenger Mat and Passenger Footrest nearby for the next stage, but the Rear Panel assembly won’t be installed until Stage 42.
