And here are three pics with the lower deck attached to the chassis

I have fixed the battery box in place and the lower deck ceiling just so that the wiring doesn't get broken and to keep everything safe.

all the wires from issues 75 and 76 were connected to the printed circuit board plus the others that needed to be.

And after switching on and testing, all things work as intended.

here is a pic of the lights.

Once the testing was finished the wires were then unplugged and put to one side to keep them safe (although in the mag it just says to tie/tape me up)
