Introduction: Knex Car - Emerald
I built Emerald in March 2012, getting almost everything to fit in this car sure is a challenge. Front wheel steering, Four doors, Hood with prop rod, Trunk, Rear fold down seats, adjustable front seats, and sun roof. I had metal springs for the suspension at first, later I changed it stiff after seeing the front not working for years.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Base
I guess you can say this is my signature Base for every car, I've done other styles that was lighter, but couldn't fit any seats in the right spots.
Step 2: Rear Wheels
I made the arch at first for the springs, they were taken out then replaced with the white rods holding the axle in place.
Step 3: Geared Steering System
This Geared Steering System has problems, it will need to be tuned after this step and every time it's used.
Step 4: Dash Board, Bumper
The steering wheel is held in by Gravity.
Step 5: Front Body and Hood
Im trying to reduce pictures by showing multiple shots in different angles.
Step 6: Seats
Rear Seats connects in on the black clips, the front seats are on different rods for both independent adjustment.
Step 7: Rear Body
Best to show this in one piece.
Step 8: Trunk, Doors, Roof
The final additions to Emerald, What a Great Compact Car
Step 9: Random Picture
I'm showing off all my K'NEX Figures in front of a few cars for the fun of it, The Few knex cars are Emerald, Mustang, and Project Hot Rod.
