The Right Headlight

Step 01

Insert the Headlight Lens into the larger of the two circular recesses of the Right Headlight Base, as shown. Make sure it is fully seated by gently tapping it down with a straw or pen.

The Headlight Lens has a flat side and a convex side. The flat side should be facing into the Right Headlight Base. I used a cotton swab to seat this into place fully:

Step 02

In the same way, insert the Sidelight Lens into the smaller of the two circular recesses of the Right Headlight Base, as shown.

Like the Headlight Lens above, this Sidelight Lens has a flat side and a convex side. The flat side should be facing the Right Headlight Base:

Step 03

Fit this Right Headlight Base to the Right Headlight Holder as shown, and secure together with two (2) BP screws:

Step 04

Retrieve your Body assembly. Fit the two posts underneath the front edge of the Right Headlight Holder to the matching holes at the right front corner of the Front Body, as shown.

This headlight assembly should sit flush with the body when installed correctly:

Step 05

While holding this headlight in place, secure it to the Front Body from below with two (2) GP screws, as shown:

Step 06

Fit the Right Headlight Cover on top of the headlight assembly, aligning the two posts underneath to the matching holes in the Front Body, as shown:

There are also two tabs along the clear edge of this Right Headlight Cover that need to slide down into slots between the headlight and the body. The rear one (arrow below) is the trickier of the two and must be pushed with some pressure:

Step 07

Secure the Right Headlight Cover into place from below with two (2) GP screws:

Thoughts


This headlight actually looks better than I thought it would, and it was fun to build! Get ready to do this all again on the left side.
