Chassis Front Support Panel

Step 89.1

Retrieve your Front Left Fender from the previous kit. Fit the left side of the Chassis Front Support Panel to the matching posts at the front of the Fender, orienting it as shown.

The ends of the Support Panel angle towards the rear of the car, so this will help determine which side is the left side:

Steps 89.2-89.3

Secure this Support Panel to the Front Left Fender with two (2) DS02 screws.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Thoughts


I appreciate that the ‘Gone in 60 Seconds‘ emblem is already attached to these Front Fenders, even if it is not exactly movie accurate. It is likely the designers of this model used an official replica car from Fusion Motor Co. to create our partwork build. The car from the movie would have had the original Shelby GT500 ‘snake’ emblem – the same thing goes for our model’s Glovebox badge.
