HO-Scale Life Like Proto 2000 0-8-0 Steam shown prior to installation.
To start off this install, we must first remove the four screws highlighted above.
With the screws removed, while gently pulling outwards at each end and along each side of the frame, lift the shell off of the frame.
The Life Like Proto 2000 0-8-0 Steam tender shown with the shell off. Unplug the 8 pin connector from the original lighting board and move it off to the side.
With the connector loosened, remove the two screws highlighted above in red and remove the lighting board from the chassis.
Attach the P2K-MB1 to the frame with the original screws. Plug in the original 8 pin connector to the new motherboard.
With the board on place, the LED that is furnished pre-set on the board will need to be bent outward slightly to direct the light into the light
tube found inside the rear of the tender shell.
Next, in order to create a place for the sound the escape, using a small drill, drill in a series of small holes into the coal load at various angles as shown above.
Once the tender is back together, these holes are visually inconspicuous, but aid greatly in the volume and quality of the sound output.
With the 35mm X 16mm WOWSound speaker inserted into the UNI-SH1-C enclosure, mount this assembly to the frame as shown above.On this install,
we layered a couple of trimmed to fit pieces of plastic, using double sided foam tape to 'float' the speaker assembly inside of the tender under the coal load.
We then used a small strip of hot melt glue to hold this in place.
You can now plug in your WOW121 decoder.
Now you can close up the tender and reinstall the saved screws. Be sure to be mindful of wire routing and reassembly of the shell as to not damage
or foul the installation. Your Life Like Proto 2000 0-8-0 Steam is now WOWSound equipped and ready to roll!
