Roof Components and Another Two Tools

Adding the Roof Components

Step 1

Retrieve your Water Cooler Storage from the previous stage. Press the D-shaped pin of this part into the matching hole of the Large Raised Walkway, as shown.

I did this step first so I could fully seat the Water Cooler Storage on the Walkway:

Step 2

Retrieve your Body assembly from the previous stage. Press the two pins of the Large Raised Walkway into the matching holes at the front-left corner of the Box Frame Roof Section, as shown:

Step 3

Press the two pins of the Small Raised Walkway into the matching holes at this location on the Box Frame Roof Section, as shown.

These pins are different sizes, so this will only fit correctly one way:

Step 4

Glue the D-shaped post of the Compartment Handle into the matching hole/recess on the side of the Storage Box, as shown:

Press the two pins of the Storage Box into the matching holes at this location on the Box Frame Roof Section.

These pins are different sizes, so this will only fit correctly one way – with the Handle facing out towards the side of the truck, as shown. As I was not finished with my Custom Lighting mod here, I did not fully seat this Storage Box so I could access the screw underneath:

Step 5

Press the two pins of the Medium Raised Walkway into the matching holes on top of the Storage Box, as shown:

Installing Two More Tools

Step 1

As we have done before, open this forward Storage Compartment on the left side of the Body assembly, slide out the Shelf, press the two pins of the Halligan Bar into the matching holes of the Shelf, and slide the Shelf back into the Storage Compartment:

Step 2

In the same way, open this rear Storage Compartment on the right side of the Body assembly, slide out the Shelf, press the two pins of the Hydrant Wrench into the matching holes of the Shelf, and slide the Shelf back into the Storage Compartment:

Thoughts


With these Walkways installed, I believe the entire left side of our Body assembly is now complete!
