“As you did on the left side last issue, work on the right side of your DeLorean to fix a valance and step.”

This issue will be a mirror of the previous one.



NOTE: They incorrectly labeled the Valance (Left Side) in the parts image below – it is actually the right-side.

Materials: The Valance is plastic and the Step is a soft rubber-like vinyl.

Valance – Right Side

Step 1

Retrieve your DeLorean and open the passenger’s side door.

You can use one of the Door Blocks supplied with Issue 70 or Issue 74 to prop it open. When I tried to prop open this door, the front door hinge screw fell out and landed on the seat. I am not going to try to put it back and just super glued the hinge back to the car. The door still operates fine:

Fit the Valance (Right Side) to the lower side of the car as shown:

As in the previous issue, make sure the front and rear ends of the Valance are flush to the body:

Step 2

Secure the Valance (Right Side) to the car with two (2) NM screws.

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

Step 3

Peel the backing paper from the Step and apply it to the door sill, covering the screws.

The DMC should face towards you, as shown:


It feels like we’ve done this before. What is special about completing this issue is that the body of our DeLorean is now complete! We will start adding the Doc Brown special details from this point forward.
