Build


The Rear Left Side Panels

Step 1

Retrieve your Radiator Frame assembly from Stage 46 and your Fan Frame assembly from Stage 47. Press the four pins of the Radiator into the matching holes of the Fan Frame, as shown:

Step 2

Retrieve your Cover Plate from the previous stage. Fit the two rounded tabs of this Plate over these matching posts inside the Lower Rear Left Side Panel, orienting it as shown:

Secure the Cover Plate to the Side Panel with two (2) Type H screws.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on the threads of all screws going into metal parts:

Step 3

Fit the Radiator/Fan Frame assembly to the inside of the Cover Plate, as shown.

There are two recessed holes and two locating pins that need to fit to matching posts and alignment holes of the other part:

As these parts are fitted, there are few areas we need to ensure are mated together correctly.

  • First, slide the free end of the Front Tube onto the matching pin of the Cover Plate:

  • Next, make sure the face of the Radiator assembly fits under this lip of the Side Panel:

  • Then, make sure this tab of the Side Panel is sitting flush inside the matching recess of the Radiator:

This is what we should have so far:

Secure the Cover Plate to the Radiator/Fan Frame assembly with two (2) Type E screws:

Fit the Upper Rear Left Side Panel over the Radiator/Fan Frame assembly, as shown:

There are two small locating pins along this side of the Radiator face. This edge of the Upper Side Panel should fit below them, as shown:

Align the two rounded tabs of the Upper Side Panel to these matching posts of the Lower Side Panel, then begin securing these parts together at the upper hole with one (1) Type H screw:

Finish securing these parts together at the lower hole with one (1) Type M screw.

The instructions may say to use a Type H screw here, but it should be a Type M screw:

Thoughts


I love how this Radiator housing looks, but it can be a bit tricky to get aligned correctly. We will not need this assembly for the rest of this pack, so it can be safely stored for now.
