Build


The Left Door (3)

Step 1

Retrieve your Left Door assembly from the previous stage. Similar to the Right Door, fit the Left Door Detail to this location inside the Door, align the locating pin, and secure it into place with one (1) Type AA screw as shown.

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

Step 2

Fit the Left Door Front Panel to the two matching posts along the forward inside edge of the Left Door Interior, as shown.

There are two alignment holes in the Panel that fits over matching locating pins of the Interior:

Secure the Front Panel to the Interior with two (2) Type Q screws:

Step 3

Fit the Left Door Interior to the inside of the Left Door assembly, aligning the screw holes as shown.

As with the first Door, there are a few areas to focus on as we fit this Interior to the Door:

The forward edge of the Interior panel needs to be angled to slide this notch down over the chrome hinge, as shown:

Along the bottom of the Door, there are tiny tabs the the Interior panel fits over. I found this ‘joint’ did not like to stay together, so I applied a tiny bit of super glue along the edge and clamped these parts together:

At the rear edge of the Door, simply make sure the Interior is fully seated, as shown:

Finally, there are pins on the roof of the Door that align to holes of the Interior panel. I had to gently flex the Door plastic to seat them in the holes at these locations:

Once fitted properly, secure this Interior into place with three (3) Type G screws, as shown:

Complete this stage by pressing the four pins of the Upper Interior Lining into the matching holes of the Left Door Upper Panel, as shown:

Thoughts


As we have done all this before on the first door, there is nothing crazy to mention here. However, in the next stage, we will not only finish this Left Door but attach both Doors to the Main Chassis!
