The Air Vent Grille, Wipers, and Side Mirror

Step 01

Retrieve your Body assembly from the previous phase. Fit the Windshield Air Vent Grille into the Main Body Shell at this location at the bottom of the Front Windshield, as shown:

Secure this in place from below with two (2) HP screws:

Step 02

Fit the Left Windshield Wiper (with the shorter blade) and the Right Windshield Wiper to the matching holes below the Front Windshield, as shown:

Secure these into place from below with two (2) EP screws, one for each wiper:

Step 03

Fit the Side Mirror to the matching recess on the left front fender and secure from below with one (1) HP screw.

I waited on installing this Side Mirror until Phase 91. We are not done turning the Body assembly upside down and I did not want to risk damaging it.

Thoughts


This phase was about adding external details to the body and went by quickly!
