Looks right.. I know the shape cunnigly gives just enough room to swing an open ended spanner through 65ish degrees so you can do up the bumper bracket nut, but it's a tight squeeze. Unfortunately I cannot get at my car just now. I don't have the small bits, but they may have been lost.

2) Install front cross-member to bumpers and over riders.
3) Install front side panels and attach wiring.
4) Install grill.
5) Install headlights.
6) Install engine.
7) Install radiator.
8) Weld rear diagonals.
9) Attach exhausts.
10) Buy a ticket for Scimfest to help celebrate 50th anniversary of the GTE.
