Power Coil Frame and Grilles

Step 1

Fit the ends of the Front Power Coil Frame into the large holes at the front of the Junction Boxes on either side of the car, as shown:

Step 2

Make sure the Front Power Coil Frame fits in between each of the Power Coil Brackets:

Step 3

On the left side, secure the Power Coil Grille (99B) into place with two (2) AP screws, as shown.

The Power Coil Grilles arrive on photo-etched metal sheet. Each piece has an engraved part number near it. Simply give these a little twist to remove them from the sheet one at a time as you need them:

When installing this Power Coil Grille 99B, the shape of it should kind of point towards the ground in front of the car. If you ‘wrap’ it around the front of the car and it does not line up with the coil frame, flip it over and try again:

Step 4

Secure the rear holes of this Power Coil Grille with two (2) IP screws:

Step 5

On the right side, in the same way, secure the Power Coil Grille (99D) into place with two (2) AP screws, as shown.

Step 6

Secure the rear holes of this Power Coil Grille with two (2) IP screws:

Step 7

Fit the long Power Coil Grille (99C) to the center front of the Front Power Coil Frame, and secure with four (4) AP screws as shown.

This Power Coil Grille also has a slight bend to it and will only line up one way:

Step 8

Secure the center of this Power Coil Grille with two (2) IP screws:

Steps 9-10

On the left side, carefully bend the side Power Coil Grille around the front, overlapping the holes, and secure with two (2) AP screws as shown.

You may notice that I decided to have the side grilles go under the center grille here, but I don’t think it matters:

Steps 11-12

On the right side, do the same thing, overlapping the holes, and secure with two (2) AP screws as shown:

Steps 13-14

Check that your Filaments (or EL wire in my case) is neatly tucked behind the Front Power Coil Frame:

Thoughts


Come on, how great does the front of our DeLorean look now?! Finishing this issue means that our front end is now complete. We will start on the sides of the car next. The Front Power Coil Frame is silver plastic, but the grilles are metal.
