Now I add the hatch rail to the other fuse side... (if you notice, I put it on the wrong side... I cut it off and fixed it.. )

Now work the other fuse side onto the whole assembly... starting from the front and working back... make sure to put the ply motor mount formers in there... as you work back, the fuse squares itself out nicely.
