The REPLACEMENT GEAR COVER for the Asahi Toy, Junior Products Lotus 49 F-1 battery operated race car is created from a mold taken of the original toy part and is guaranteed to be a perfect fit. It is possible that there may be tiny bubbles that appear in the casting, as shown in the pictures. That 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.*
