Fitting the Headlights
Retrieve your Front Body from Stage 80 and place it upside down on a soft cloth. Note these two mounting point tabs:
Retrieve your Headlight assembly from the previous stage. Slide the bar of the Headlight Support under these two tabs with the Headlight Lenses facing down, as shown:
Retrieve your two Support Plates from Stage 79. Fit one of the Support Plates over the Headlight Support at the mounting tabs as shown, then secure it into place with one (1) Type Q screw.
This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:
Repeat this process using the second Support Plate on the opposite side using one (1) more Type Q screw:
This is what our mounted Headlights look like. They can be manually raised by pivoting them up away from the body:
Retrieve all of your parts and screws from Stage 81. Fit the Bonnet Grille Support to the underside of the Front Body at this mounting point, as shown:
Secure the Bonnet Grille Support into place with one (1) Type S screw.
Take care not to over-tighten this screw. I cracked my Support here and needed to super glue it back together:
Lay out your Front Bonnet Hinges and Bonnet Support Brackets as shown:
Fit the eyelets of each Hinge into its respective Bracket as shown and prepare two (2) Type G screws:
Secure the Hinges to the Brackets using the two screws, as shown:
With the Headlights now mounted, our Miura is taking on a bit more personality!
