Part 2:

  In the Mission Models (Advanced Setups) section, it gives the
instructions for attaching the Pump System.  The figure for Step 1 shows
where to put dual lock on the Pump System.  Since the picture is
low-resolution, here's what to do:  use 6 pairs of dual lock.  I've
included a picture showing where they go on one side.

  One at the top of the long gray piece on the centerline of the round part.
  One at the bottom of the round part, also on the long gray piece.
  One diagonally at the bottom of the long gray piece above the round part.

  Once you have the 6 pairs of dual lock attached to the model (you'll have
sticky sides out on the outside of the pairs), line the model up between
its marks and push north to attach to the North wall.  The Pump System will
still be sitting on the Mat.
