Step 101.1

Retrieve your Body assembly from Kit 99 and your Windshield from the previous kit. Slide the long lower tab of the Windshield down into this matching opening of the Body, as shown.

Step 101.3

Then, press the pins along the sides and top of the Frame into the respective holes of the Body.
