The Left Door Inner Panel

Step 01

Retrieve your Left Door from the previous phase. Fit the two tabs at the top of the Left Door Inner Panel into the two matching slots of the Left Door Headliner, as shown:

Step 02

Secure the Left Door Inner Panel to the Left Door with six (6) JM screws, 3 on each end, as shown.

You may have to angle these screws a little to get them started. They will straighten up when fully tightened. This is also your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Thoughts


Having all the detail bits pre-installed on this inner panel is both nice and disappointing. While we don’t have to fiddle with small parts, we also lost a few things to assemble. Still, I think they look fantastic!
