STAGE 58

This section provides the rear body frame but there is no work to do as yet.

STAGE 59

The hinge parts are included in this pack and are very straightforward to fit.
Make sure all the screws are tight.

The next stage will see the first rear body side panel fitted and the custom decal applied...

STAGE 60

This pack contains the left rear body panel.
The decal to fit on the panel was trimmed to shape and then applied. Once dry, the decal edges were touched in with matching paint colours where necessary.

The engine cover was then fitted to the rear body section and the side panel fixed in place.

STAGE 61

This pack contains the first of the two rear wings (fenders).
This part is put to one side for now.

STAGE 62

The second rear side of the body is included in this pack.
The decals previously printed are cut out individually and applied to the relevant body panel.
In this case, the right hand rear panel.

When the decal is dry, the leading edges of the panels where the door will close can be touched in with matching paint colours.

Both panels are now fixed to the rear body section.

STAGE 63

At this stage, the two rear wings (fenders) are also fitted.

STAGE 64

This set of parts is for the rear lights which are very easy to fit to the rear wings/fenders.

STAGE 65

These parts are for one inner rear body panel, side window and the associated seat belt.
Assembly of these parts is very straight-forward and the panel is fixed into the body once it is put together.

STAGE 66

The inner trim panel for the previous assembly is included here.
This part should be trimmed in the interior fabric if you have trimmed the rest of the cabin and seats.
Use double-sided tape as before and trim the fabric around the panel with a sharp blade.
Once completed, the panel clips into the body panel previously fitted.
