Return to the BUILD
“In this stage, you fit window frame parts and the quarter light window to the right front door.”
This stage will be the same as Stage 81, just with the opposite front door.
NOTE: It has been acknowledged that this Right Front Door incorrectly includes the side rear view mirror. On the real car, this mirror did not exist. A replacement door without the mirror slot will be supplied with Stage 107. If you want your model to be accurate, wait for the new door before completing stages 91-94. If you choose to build out the door included in these stages, you will have to take it all apart again when the replacement door arrives. I am using the updated replacement door here.
Materials: The Right Front Window Frame Top/Right Skirtings are metal, but everything else is plastic.
Right Front Door Window Frame and Skirting
Retrieve your Right Front Door assembly from the previous stage. Fit the pins of the Quarter Light Window into the two small vertical recesses on the outside of the front window opening, as shown:
Fit the Right Front Window Frame Support to the bottom edge of the Right Front Window Frame as shown.
There is a pin on the Frame Support that fits into this matching hole at this location (circled below) of the Right Front Window Frame:
Fit the Right Front Window Frame assembly to the Right Front Door, sliding the lower tabs inside the door, then pushing the four posts of the upper edge into their matching holes, as shown:
Secure the tabs of the Right Front Window Frame into place from behind with two (2) DM screws, as shown.
This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:
Finish securing the top of the Right Front Window Frame with four (4) OP screws:
Remove the backing paper from the Right Front Window Frame Top Skirting and fit it into the top groove of the Right Front Window Frame.
When this is installed, be sure to line up the two holes at the front end, as shown:
In the same way, fit the Right Front Window Frame Right Skirting into the rear groove of the Right Front Window Frame as shown:
Finally, press the two pins of the Right Front Window Frame Top Cover into the holes of the Right Front Window Frame Top Skirting, as shown:
Not much to say here as we have done all this before on the Left Front Door.
