Parts

Materials: The Outer Door Panel and Window Winder are metal, the Seat is hard rubber, and everything else is plastic.

NOTE: Save any spare screws left over at the end of each stage of this build. They may be needed in later stages!

Build


Rear Right Cab Door & Captain’s Seat

Step 1
Captain’s Seat

Super glue the flat side of the Seat Support to the bottom of the Captain’s Seat, making sure the post of the Seat Support is nearest to the back of the seat as shown:

Step 2
Rear Right Cab Door

Fit the post of the Window Winder into this hole of the Inner Door Panel and press it into place until it clicks.

Take care to only press on the Window Winder post and not the handle so we don’t bend it:

Inside the Inner Door Panel, fit the Gear onto the exposed square end of the Window Winder, as shown.

One side of the Gear has a raised circular center section – this side needs to face towards the Inner Door Panel:

Apply super glue to the insides of these three holes of the Inner Door Panel:

Align those three holes of the Inner Door Panel to the matching pins on the back of the Outer Door Panel, and firmly press these parts together allowing the glue to set:

Apply super glue around these three pins of the Inner Cab Panel:

Fit the metal panel of the Outer Door Panel over those same pins of the Inner Cab Panel aligning it as shown, then press it firmly into place allowing the glue to set.

You may need to press this metal panel down onto the pins so it sits flush:

Apply a small drop of super glue to this D-shaped hole on the outside of the Outer Door Panel:

Firmly press the D-shaped post of the Outer Door Handle into the same hole and allow the glue to set:

Thoughts


We should be professional ladder truck door builders by now as this was our third door! I am hoping we receive the cab frame soon so we can get these door mounted. Save the unused Type H screw for use in later stages.
