13. This square "step" on the side tells the difference between the left and right buckets.

The "step" goes towards the outside of the car - towards the fender. The inside has no "step".

Notice how these have red dots on them? They are for the drivers side. Also notice that each ring is arranged for one hole in the middle and two holes on the outside.

15. Here are the tabs that you will use to attach the headlights to the floater rings.
