Return to the BUILD
“In this phase you will fix the lower left rear trim panel to the chassis of your Eleanor Mustang model.“
The last time we worked on our Eleanor build was November 2021, long before Eaglemoss went under. Thanks to the great people over at Fanhome, it feels great to finally be back at it!

Lower Left Rear Trim Panel
NOTE: Included with this Kit were two small circular mirror stickers. These look like stickers for the door Side Mirrors, but the ones I installed back in those kits were fine. Perhaps there were other builders who were missing them:
Fit the D-shaped post of the Courtesy Light into this matching hole of the Lower Left Rear Trim Panel, as shown:
Secure this Light into place from the other side with one (1) PS05 screw:
Fit the post of the Rear Seat Back Latch into this matching hole of the Lower Left Rear Trim Panel, aligning it into the recess as shown.
Take care not to damage the small silver pin on this Latch:
Secure this Latch into place from the other side with one (1) PS05 screw:
Retrieve your Interior assembly from the previous kit and carefully turn it upside down. Fit this Rear Trim Panel to the left rear corner of the Interior, aligning the three mounting tabs to the relevant posts as shown. Secure the Trim Panel to the Interior with three (3) PS05 screws.
As the upper section of this Trim Panel is coming with the next Kit, I decided to wait until then before attached the entire assembly to the Interior.
After more than a year delay due to the collapse of Eaglemoss, I am very excited to be able to finish our Eleanor Mustang model via Fanhome. I really thought we would never see this day! Keep this Interior assembly nearby as we will add the upper section of this Trim Panel in the next kit.
