Greetings from new member and a question

Post by jarle.kjonigsen » Wed Aug 26, 2020 3:55 pm

Hi everyone!

Started building my King Tiger here in Norway and the kit is great. I have one question for assembling the rear deck: what fastener do I use for attaching the deck support (CK0115) to the pannier side (CK0110)? In the rear part you use M4x8 to attach CK0117 to CK0108, but can’t find any mention of what fastener to use.

Regards
Jarle

Hi Jarle,
Welcome to the forum.
I would use the same M4 x 8 cap screw.
You might want to take a look at my build blog and consider doing what I did instead of using CKO115 at all.
We are all here to help if you have any further questions.

Thank you! It has to be a M4 fastener but the M4 x 8 is 2 mm too long and the M4 x 6 is a perfect fit, but I don’t have enough of those... I will just improvise. :D Or just do like you. I’m already following your build and Greta work!
