“In this phase you will install the upper right rear trim panel on top of the lower right rear trim panel of your Eleanor Mustang model.“
The assembly in this kit will be nearly identical to the steps in Kit 60, but on the other side of the car.
Upper Right Rear Trim Panel
Fit the two posts of the Ventilation Grille into the matching holes of the Upper Right Rear Trim Panel, aligning it into the recess as shown:
Secure this Grille into place from the other side with two (2) PS05 screws:
Retrieve your Interior assembly from the previous kit. Fit this Upper Right Rear Trim Panel to the top edge of the Lower Right Rear Trim Panel, aligning the three mounting tabs to the relevant posts on the back side:
Begin securing these Right Rear Trim Panels together with two (2) PS05 screws at the rear mounting tabs:
Finish securing these Right Rear Trim Panels together with one (1) PS14 screw at the forward tab:
Attaching the Rear Trim Panels to the Interior
NOTE: These steps were including in the previous kit’s instructions, however I found it easier to mount these two Trim Panels as one big piece.
Retrieve your Interior assembly from the previous kit and carefully turn it upside down. Fit this Rear Trim Panel to the right rear corner of the Interior, aligning the three mounting tabs to the relevant posts as shown:
As on the other side, note how the rear corner slides under edge of the Rear Luggage Platform:
And at the front, there is a tab with a hole that needs to be pressed down onto this pin of the Rear Floor:
Press the two split-pins on the free end of the Trunk Partition Panel into the matching tabs of the Trim Panels, as shown:
Finally, secure the Trim Panel to the Interior with three (3) PS05 screws.
These PS05 screws were supplied with the previous kit:
Both of our Rear Trim Panels are now installed and we are making very good progress on the Interior of our Eleanor Mustang!
