Remove the wires and the original lighting board.
Attach the new AK-MB1 motherboard onto the original chassis clips and solder the motor and track connections to it.
Show with these wire leads soldered in place. Install the LED lights onto the ends of the existing light tubes with a dab of hot glue and solder the light
connections onto the AK-MB1 according to the included wiring diagram.
Install the 25mm x 14mm speaker into the UNIV-SH4-C enclosure and then mount this assembly into the roof of the shell, under the front lighting tube,
using double sided foam tape, then solder the speaker connections onto the AK-MB1.
