+[title] Mount the Infrared Sensor
+[* black] Now you will mount the infrared receiver so it has line of sight to the infrared remote control.
+[* black] As shown in the first photo, you will have somewhat of a jumble of wires collected in the rear back of your Bugatti. You can use some of the included sticky squares to mount adapter boards to the flat panel in front of the engine or elsewhere in the area under the roof where the wires will be hidden once the roof is closed again.
+[* icon_note] If you will be using an AA battery pack to power your model, do not attach any wires or adapter boards using sticky squares, as the battery pack needs to be able to slide into the space in front of the engine (on the flat panel under the roof). The next step discusses how to mount the battery pack.
+[* black] As shown in the second and third photo, use one sticky square to mount the infrared sensor in a location where it has line of sight to the exterior of the car.
+[* icon_note] In the third photo, we demonstrate mounting the infrared receiver in the center channel of the roof, but this is also where you will later re-attach the long blue tube, so you may decide to mount it in a different location.
+[* icon_note] Note that the front of the infrared receiver is the side with the little black bubble of plastic. The back of the receiver is the flat side. The receiver must be mounted with the front side facing up/out in order to receive signals (don't attach the sticky tape to the front side of the receiver).
