Installing the Rear Window

Peel two (2) more strips of Double-Sided Tape from the backing paper and apply them to the lower inside edge of the Rear Window Frame:
Remove the protective film from all four pieces of the Double-Sided Tape we just installed.
Tweezers or the tip of a hobby knife help get under the edges here. We want to leave the sticky layer behind:
Fit the Rear Window to the Rear Window Frame, aligning and pressing the pins of the Rear Window Frame into the matching holes of the Rear Window.
Make sure these are connected together as shown. Hold these parts together for a few seconds to adhere the tape.
This Rear Window assembly will not be needed again until Stage 70, so keep it protected in a safe place for now.
