Here are some exploded views to help with building your Thorneycroft Lorries.
The forward (55mm) wire length needs bending to shape. Centre this under the chassis and bend upwards at the edge of the chassis, then horizontal to form the front mount. Repeat this for the other side.
The shorter front mudguards attach to the vehicle using the wire supplied. The shorter (40mm) wire length is the rear mount Fit this at the rear of the spring where it attaches to the chassis ensuring it is centred.
The longer mudguards are for the rear and are attached directly to the body of the vehicle.
Do this BEFORE fitting the front axle and wheels, but do a dry run first to ensure a good fit.
