Issue 028 - Radiator

Issue 029 - Chassis Plate
|Issue 029 contents|
There is also a center plate that comes with this. Only two screws on the back end holds this plate down for now. No worries, the other two screws will be part of the fuel tank cover plate.
|Bottom of the chassis|
On the bottom of the chassis in marked with 1/8 1982 Delorean DMC-12
There are two mistakes with this mark. First, the year should be 1981. Second, and many people make this mistake, DeLorean is written with an upper case "L". Check the old DMC documents, see how John DeLorean wrote and signed his name. Every time you write it with a lower case "l", you die a little inside...much like smoking a cigarette. I guess that is your pro tip of the day.
Issue 030 - Water Pipes
|Issue 030 contents|
These parts are a little tricky. Pay attention to the orientation of the pipes and were the screws holes line up with the chassis.
There are two black hoses that need to be mounted on the finished engine. If you are missing parts of the engine, hold on to these two hoses for later.
Issue 031 - Air Deflector Plates
|Issue 031 contents|
For such a small and 'unimportant' piece, there sure are a lot of screws used to attach these. Seven on each side for the model kit. Air Deflectors on a full size car only use three nuts to secure the plates.
At the end of Issue 031, your car should look like this, but hopefully with an engine in place.
|Assembled car sans engine|
Now the best part, the screw count, omitting 020, 022, 024, 025, and 026.
