Return to the BUILD
“The cab will be the focus over the next few stages. You’ll start by assembling components onto the central console.“
Materials: All of the non-electrical parts in this stage are plastic.
NOTE: Save any spare screws left over at the end of each stage of this build. They may be needed in later stages!
Components for the Cab Central Console
Fit the Speaker into this round opening at the forward end of the Central Console, routing the two wires through the slots, as shown:
Place the Speaker Cover over the Speaker, aligning the screw holes:
Secure the Speaker Cover to the Central Console with two (2) Type C screws, capturing the Speaker into place:
Handles and Axe
Press the two pins of a Handle into these holes on the side of the Central Console:
Repeat this process on the other side of the Central Console with the remaining Handle:
Press the D-shaped post of the Axe into the matching hole at this location on the lower left side of the Central Console:
Central Console Storage
Press the two pins of the Central Console Storage into the matching holes on the front of the Cab Divider Glass.
The two pins of the Central Console Storage (and the matching holes in the Cab Divider Glass) are different sizes so this Storage part will only fit correctly to one side of the Cab Divider Glass, as shown:
Slide the tab of the Central Console Storage down into the matching slot at this location on the Central Console:
Press the D-shaped pin of the Engineer’s Switch Panel into this matching hole of the Central Console:
It is exciting to begin work on our Ladder 9 interior! I can’t wait to see what else we will add to it as the build continues on. Be sure to save the unused Type H screws for use in later stages.
