Fitting Parts to the Right Thigh
Retrieve your T-800 endoskeleton. Fit the Right Leg Plate into this same-shaped matching opening of the Right Thigh, as shown:
From the opposite side of the Right Thigh, secure the Right Leg Plate into place with three (3) PB 2×4 mm screws, as shown:
Retrieve the Right Leg Part assembly from the previous issue. Secure the ‘loop’ end to this location on the Right Thigh assembly with one (1) PM 3×16 mm screw.

Two quick parts and we are finished. It will be another long two months before I receive more parts, but the right leg should really start to take shape soon. The single part included in this issue is plastic.
Running Total of screws used so far: 185
