Take 8 x ML1 screws and using a PH0 screwdriver attach the roof rack to the roof of the Ecto-1 (2 x ML1 screws on each corner).
Attaching the Green Storage Tube
Starting with the top three fixing points on the green storage tube brackets – take 3 x ML1 screws and using a PH0 screwdriver begin attaching to the right-hand side of the roof rack.
Finish attaching the green storage tube to the roof rack using a further 3 x ML1 screws for the bottom fixing points on the green storage tube brackets.
Carefully remove the 3M backing from the ladder bracket.
Avoid putting any pressure on the ladder bracket as it is a delicate piece of the ladder assembly.
Hook the top ladder brackets over the roof rack, aligning with and covering the fixing points that were originally intended for the Eaglemoss ladder.
The ladder is designed to hang off the roof rack and requires no glueing or additional fixings.
To ensure the ladder is perfectly straight against the Ecto-1, you may need to bend it slightly in the middle as you fix to the side of the Ecto-1 to align everything perfectly. The ladder will flex slightly to allow you to achieve this, so don’t worry.
Remove the 3M backing from the ladder bracket and align with the bracket holes in the side of the Ecto-1.
Check that the ladder is straight and square to the side of the Ecto-1 and gently push into position – be careful not to put too much pressure on the ladder bracket.
Securely hold the green storage tube ensuring that it can’t move or twist, gently grip the edges of the end caps (not by the handles), and you’ll notice they are removable – giving you access to inside the storage tube. And, if you look closely there may even be a little surprise inside!
Do not pull on the handles themselves – these are delicate and are for decoration only. Only open the end caps by gripping the edges.
Congratulations, Kit 1 is now complete!
