The Left Door Window (I)

Stage 86.1

Retrieve your Left Door assembly from Stage 83. Fit the Chrome Guide to the inner top edge of the Left Door, as shown.

Be gentle with this Chrome Guide as the upright pieces could be easily bent or broken:

Secure the Chrome Guide to the Left Door from the inside with four (4) CM screws.

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

Stage 86.2

Retrieve your Left Door Inner assembly from the previous stage. Fit the Chrome Deflector Trim to this location on the inside of the Left Door Inner, as shown. Secure it into place along the bottom edge with two (2) TP screws:

Fit the Deflector Mount Bracket over this lower pin and secure it into place with one (1) DP screw, as shown:

While this door interior looks complete, we still have the windows, crank mechanism, trim and weatherstrips to install. I am surprised it takes six stages just to complete one door!
