“For this stage you’ll work on the bottom floor panel by adding the battery compartment and fixing the switch in place. You’ll also fix the shield emblem onto the front body.”
Materials: The non-electrical parts in this stage are plastic.
Installing the Shield Emblem
Retrieve your Front Body assembly from Stage 89. Press the two pins of the Shield Emblem into the matching holes at this forward location, aligning it into the recess as shown:
Adding the Battery Compartment
Fit the Battery Compartment with Switch to the Bottom Floor Panel, aligning the two mounting tabs to these posts as shown:
Secure this Battery Compartment into place with two (2) Type B screws:
Fit the Switch into this slot of the Bottom Floor Panel as shown.
This Switch can be accidentally installed backwards. Make sure the two wires of this switch are closer to the Battery Compartment:
Secure the switch into place with two (2) Type O screws:
As the main power switch, it will be operated by sliding it back and forth on the underside of the car:
Remove the Washer from the Screw with Plastic Washer, then insert the Screw through this hole of the Battery Compartment Cover:
Turn the Cover over and reinstall the Washer onto the exposed threads of the Screw, as shown.
This Washer will help ‘capture’ the screw and keep it from being easily lost while accessing the Battery Compartment:
Slide the tabs of the Battery Compartment Cover into the Battery Compartment and lower the Cover into place:
Tighten the Screw with Plastic Washer to secure the Cover closed:
While the Floor Panel seems accurate, for most of us it will never be looked at. But, the famous bull logo of Lamborghini on the hood will – I love it! Keep the unused Extension Cable nearby for use in the next stage.
