… and one (1) CM screw at the rear inner hole:

Step 02

On the other side, fit the Right Front Fender Liner onto the Front Middle Chassis (over the right front wheel), as shown, and secure the Right Front Fender Liner down with two (2) DM screws at the front…

Fit the Radiator Rear into the Radiator Front, and secure with six (6) HP screws, as shown:

Step 04
