Mounting the Right Door Panel and Trim

Steps 1-2

Retrieve your Door Panel assembly from the previous stage. Fit this Panel to the Right Door Inside Panel as shown and firmly press the two parts  together:

I noticed they even painted the red reflector on the outer end of this Inside Panel. Nice touch!

Step 3

Secure these two Door Panels together from the other side with four (4) PS05 screws:

Step 4

Retrieve your Right Door assembly from Stage 005. Fit this Panel assembly onto the three matching posts inside of the Door, as shown.

As before, you can protect your exterior painted surfaces by working with them on a soft towel or similar surface:

Step 5

Secure the Panel assembly to the Door with three (3) DS02 screws.

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

Steps 6-7

Fit the lower tabs of the Top Trim into the matching slots of the Door Panel, then pop the upper tabs into place as shown.

If you find this fitment difficult, you may need to remove some excess plastic from the parts with a sharp hobby knife:

Step 8

To fit the Bottom Trim, first slide the small tab on the end into this matching slot of the Door Panel:

Next, align the pins of the Bottom Trim into the matching holes of the Door Panel:

Then, as you seat the pins into the Door Panel, tuck this upper tab of the Bottom Trim into the matching slot:

Finally, fully press the pins into place:

Steps 9-10

Align the three pins of the L-shaped Trim to the matching holes of the Bottom Trim, then firmly press it into place as shown:

Thoughts


How appropriate that our first pack of this No Time To Die DB5 ends with stage double-0 7! And with this stage behind us, we have completed our Right Door. When the next shipment arrives, we will begin work on the engine of our DB5. Therefore, the Bonnet, Wheel, and Door assemblies of this pack can be safely stored away until we need them again later on.
