Asahi Toys Junior Products Lotus 49 F-1 Replacement GEAR Cover
The REPLACEMENT GEAR COVER for the Asahi Toy, Junior Products Lotus 49 F-1 battery-operated race car. Created from a mold taken of the original toy part, it is guaranteed to be a perfect fit. It is possible for tiny bubbles to appear in the casting, as shown in the pictures. This was my first cast part and more recent casts have been bubble-free.
The gear cover can be installed on the two different engine versions of the Lotus toy. Plated engines used on the wing cars have molded bosses to mount the wing. This version utilizes the tiny mounting pins on the clear gear cover. Engines without plating are for the non-wing cars and the clear gear cover is installed with the pins removed as the engine has no holes for the pins to go into. The pins can be easily trimmed off for a flush fit. Both versions require the cover to be glued on and just a drop of super glue to each pin area is sufficient.
Crafted with precision, this replacement gear cover is made from durable materials, ensuring it withstands the test of time just like your cherished model. It is engineered to match the original gear cover of the Asahi Lotus 49 F-1 in both shape and size, ensuring a seamless fit and maintaining the vehicle’s sleek, racing aesthetic.
This replacement part is crucial for preserving the mechanical integrity and the aesthetic completeness of your model. Whether you’re an experienced collector or new to vintage toy restoration, this gear cover is easy to install and is a vital piece for keeping your Lotus 49 F-1 in prime condition.
