Instructions

  1. 1

    Lay a 2-by-4 plate on a flat surface. Connect a 1-by-2-by-2 brick on the middle two lumps of the four lumps on one side of the 2-by-4 plate.

  2. 2

    Attach another 1-by-2-by-2 brick on the two lumps at the edge of the same 2-by-4 plate. One 1-by-2-by-2 brick should be facing and touching the other 1-by-2-by-2 brick.

  3. 3

    Connect the lower and upper part of the 1-by-2 hinge brick together. Attach one of the 1-by-2 hinge brick on the two lumps on the other edge of the 2-by-4 plate. The other 1-by-2 hinge brick should swing out like a door.

  4. 4

    Attach a 1-by-2 technic brick on top of the 1-by-2 hinge brick that is not attached to the plate. This will act as the door of the safe.

  5. 5

    Insert the "3 M.Arch W.Knob And Shaft Ø3.2" into the hole of the 1-by-2 technic brick. This will act as a knob for the door.

  6. 6

    Connect a 1-by-2 brick on top of the 1-by-2 hinge brick that is connected to the 2-by-4 plate.

  7. 7

    Place a dark grey 1-by-3 plate on both lumps of the 1-by-2-by-2 brick that is on the side of the 2-by-4 plate and on one lump of the 1-by-2-by-2 brick that is on the edge of the 2-by-4 plate.

  8. 8

    Attach the lower part and upper part of the dark grey 1-by-2 hinge plate pieces together. Connect one part of the 1-by-2 hinge plates on the two lumps of the 1-by-2 brick that is on top of the 1-by-2 hinge brick that is connected to the plate. Connect the other 1-by-2 hinge plate on top of the 1-by-2 technic brick that is attached to the hinge brick (the door).

  9. 9

    Attach a dark grey 1-by-1 plate on the lump of the 1-by-2-by-2 brick on the edge of the 2-by-4 plate.

  10. 10

    Connect a dark grey 2-by-4 plate on top of the whole Lego pieces excluding the swinging door. Attach a 2-by-2 flat tile in the middle of the dark grey 2-by-4 plate.

  11. 11

    Add other accessories. Connect a 1-by-2 "No. 90" piece on top of the swinging door. Attach a 1-by-2 radiator grille on the sides of the 2-by-2 flat tile. Connect the steering wheel to the knob on the door.
