HOW-TO: Bridge Upgrade

HOW-TO: Upgrading a Scalextric Bridge

This 'how-to' just in from Mark of the Arizona Desert, thanks mate. Bash those old Scaly foot bridges, make them a little more believable: double down, jack up and add steps.

Materials needed: 2 scaly foot bridges, 1 2x4 , lemax pavement set or wooden dowels for steps.

Step 1. (optional) Paint with primer gray after removing dunlop signs.

Step 2. Reduce round nubs that held dunlop sign clear paint from glue contact points.

Step 3. Glue bridges together.

Step 4. Cut pavement as shown and glue together.

Step 5. Cut 2x4 to 1 1/2 height 1 5/8 length and width 3 1/4 (all measurements in inches) paint flat black.

Step 6. Glue parts together.

Thanks again Mark.
