The Front Mudguards

Step 1

Retrieve your Body assembly from the previous stage and gently place it upside down on a soft surface. Fit the Front Right Mudguard (marked ‘R’) into the forward area of the front right wheel well.

It is important to pay attention to these posts on the inside edge of each Mudguard:

These posts are designed to fit into, and secure, the matching holes of the Air Intake Pipes (brake ducts) on each side of the model:

Knowing this, we can begin to fit the Front Right Mudguard into place, as instructed:

The bottom rounded tab of the Mudguard needs to pop onto this post of the Front Right Wheel Arch:

Then, the inner rounded tab needs to be popped onto this post of the Main Chassis:

Step 2

Secure the bottom tab of this Mudguard into place with one (1) Type M screw.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on the threads of all screws going into metal parts:

Secure the inner tab of this Mudguard into place with one (1) Type AA screw:

Finally, secure the outer edge of the Mudguard into place with one (1) Type P screw.

It may help to use the Steering Wheel to turn the Brake Disc out of the way when installing this screw:

Step 3

In the same way as before, fit the Front Left Mudguard (marked ‘L’) into the forward area of the front left wheel well:

Next, secure the bottom tab of this Mudguard into place with one (1) Type M screw:

Then, secure the inner tab of this Mudguard into place with one (1) Type AA screw:

Finally, secure the outer edge of the Mudguard into place with one (1) Type P screw:

Thoughts


With these Mudguards installed, we have completed the assembly of not only the front wheel arches, but the entire front end of our LaFerrari!
