Assembling the Exhaust Pipe III

Stage 34.1

Retrieve the Central Exhaust assembly we built in Stage 32. Fit the Left Muffler (Piece 1) to this tab on the rear end of the left exhaust pipe and secure into place with one (1) AP screw, as shown:

There are two muffler parts marked with an ‘L’ on the inside. The Left Muffler (Piece 1) you need here is the one with the ‘L’ and the larger posts:

Stage 34.2

Retrieve the Rear Left Exhaust assembly from the previous stage. Fit the tab on the end of this assembly to the other end of the Left Muffler (Piece 1) and secure these together with one (1) AP screw.

To ensure you use the correct Rear Left Exhaust assembly here, once it is attached, the screw holes on it should face the center of the car as shown:

Stage 34.3

Join the Left Muffler (Piece 2) (the remaining part marked ‘L’) to the first Left Muffler (Piece 1) and secure them together with two (2) AP screws, as shown:

Stage 34.4

This muffler will be attached in the same way as the first. Fit the Right Muffler (Piece 1) to this tab on the rear end of the right exhaust pipe and secure into place with one (1) AP screw, as shown:

There are two muffler parts marked with an ‘R’ on the inside. The Right Muffler (Piece 1) you need here is the one with the ‘R’ and the larger posts:

Stage 34.5

Retrieve the Rear Right Exhaust assembly from the previous stage. Fit the tab on the end of this assembly to the other end of the Right Muffler (Piece 1) and secure these together with one (1) AP screw:

Stage 34.6

Join the Right Muffler (Piece 2) to the first Right Muffler (Piece 1) and secure them together with two (2) AP screws, as shown:

Stage 34.7

Retrieve your Chassis assembly and carefully turn it upside down. Make sure the mounting posts for this exhaust pipe assembly are facing down and fit the pins on the front end of each central exhaust pipe into the matching header collectors at the end of the engine exhaust headers:

Gently lower the eight mounting posts of this exhaust pipe assembly down into these matching holes on the Chassis assembly:

Stage 34.8

While holding the exhaust pipe assembly in place, turn the entire Chassis assembly upright again and secure these forward mounting points with four (4) AP screws, as shown:

Stage 34.9

Finish attaching the exhaust to the Chassis assembly by securing twelve (12) AP screws into these locations:

Thoughts


The exhaust system is now complete! We did not use the Rear Brake Hose, Brake Hose Guide, or the CM screws in this stage. Keep them nearby as we will need them in Stage 36. The parts in this stage are all plastic.
