OK, Let’s Begin Part 2!

16.) We will now proceed to lighting the middle section of the Saturn V. Using the LEGO Removal Tool, disconnect the following sections (two main and one centre section).

17.) Using the LEGO Removal tool, disconnect the two internal wall sections as shown below:

18.) Disconnect the five Jet sections

19.) Disassemble one of the Jets and then take a White 30cm Bit Light and then thread the connector side through the top of outer section. Thread it all the way through until the component is right up against the edge. 


Carefully bend the Bit Light 90 degrees so that it now sits flat against the hole then secure it in place by reconnecting the Trans Orange Round Plate

Thread the cable through the piece that connects behind and then carefully reconnect the white bar securing all pieces together.

20.) Repeat previous step to install White 30cm Bit Lights to the other four Jet sections.


21.)
Reconnect the five Jet sections to the base starting with the bottom ones, ensuring the cables for each light is laid neatly up the centre as shown below

22.) Turn the section over on it's side and then pull all the cables up to the top section. Reconnect the bottom inside wall section to secure the cables in place.


23.)
Take the the shortest two cables and connect them to the OUT ports on Flicker Effects Board


24.)
Connect the remaining three cables to a 6-Port Expansion Board 

Connect one end of a 5cm Connecting Cable to the 6-port Expansion Board and connect the other end to the remaining OUT port on the Flicker Effects Board


25.)
 Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x CR2032 Batteries to it then connect the battery pack cable to the IN Port on the Flicker Effects Board

Turn the Battery Pack on and confirm all lights and effects are working OK


26.)
Eliminate excess cabling by grouping all the cables and twisting them around each other. Tuck everything inside the open top section.


27.)
Reconnect the outside sections starting with the two main sections followed by the middle section

To turn On and OFF the lights, simply detach the middle section (from the bottom where you the cables are visible) to access the Battery Pack.


This completes installation of the lights to the middle section of the Saturn V. Let's move on to the top and final section.


28.)
Take the top section and disconnect one of the outside wall sections using the LEGO Removal Tool


Remove the outside wall section underneath


29.)
Disconnect the bottom section to allow us to then remove the following dark grey round bricks in the centre.


30.)
Reconnect the bottom section as well as one of the outside wall sections


31.)
Disconnect the Jet section and then disassemble pieces as shown below:


32.)
Follow Step 19 to install the remaining White 30cm Bit Light to this Jet section using the provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1x1.


33.)
 Pull the cable around the bottom of the Jet and then secure it in between the light grey dish and dark grey modified brick.


34.)
Reconnect the Jet section back to the bottom of this rocket section ensuring the cable is facing toward the centre of the open section above.


Lay the cable underneath the following LEGO pieces in between studs.


35.)
 Connect the other end of the Bit Light cable to any OUT port on the remaining Flicker Effects Board


Take the remaining Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x CR2032 Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board


36.)
Eliminate excess cable by looping and twisting the cable around a few times. Tuck everything into the lower compartment. The Battery Pack should sit neatly sideways. 


37.)
Turn on the battery pack and then reconnect the outside wall section.

This finally completes installation of the Light My Bricks Apollo Saturn V Lighting Kit.
Your light kit can be enjoyed either with all 3 sections connected or all apart.
