The Windshield

NOTE: The Windshield and Sun Visors will not be needed in this stage. The Windshield will be installed in the next stage, but the Visors can be safely stored as they will not be needed at all in this entire pack:

Step 1

Retrieve your Chassis assembly from the previous stage. Fit the left Hood Detail to this location near the base of the windshield opening, aligning the two screw holes as shown.

The two Hood Details are not the same. This picture should help determine which is which:

Secure this Hood Detail into place with two (2) Type H screws.

Make sure these screws are fully tightened as these are the mounts for the Bonnet. This is also your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on the threads of all screws going into metal parts:

Step 2

In the same way, fit the right Hood Detail to this location near the base of the windshield opening and secure it into place with two (2) more Type H screws:

Step 3

Fit the two posts of the Connection Panel down into the matching holes at this location on the Main Chassis.

You may notice the blue painter’s tape I installed on the Luggage Compartment lid to keep it closed as we are about to turn the Chassis over:

Secure the Panel into place from below with two (2) Type I screws:

Thoughts


We now have a way to attach our Bonnet (Hood) and the lower part of the cowling for the Windshield is installed.
