I created this replacement battery cover (part 33B) for people who are using an Arduino in combination with an external power supply. I thought this was the most elegant solution for the placement of the speaker after removal of the battery box.
Use in combination with a rectangular 40 x 20 mm speaker, available here: https://www.ebay.com/i/223278360527
Painting and assembly instructions - see also YouTube video below
- After priming paint with the paint of your choice grey or black (depending on if you are leaving the chassis black as it comes with the kit or if you have decided to repaint it grey in order to be accurate). I used Tamiya grey primer as the final paint and varnished with Humbrol Satin Varnish
- Glue the cover in place using super glue, the hinges will help you position it so that it stays where it should be. Turn the fuel tank cover with the battery door and place on a flat surface and make sure that they are level so that you will get the best result when filling.
- Fill with putty (I used Tamiya epoxy putty) and let it dry fully.
- Sand and repaint (grey or black depending on your preference).
- To install the speaker, insert the speaker onto the 4 lugs, take the X shape bracket and screw it in place using 4 AP screws.
Designed for the Eaglemoss 1:8 scale Back to the Future DeLorean.
